To: www-validator@w3.org
I used http://validator.w3.org/check to validate (simplified):


___________________________

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" lang="en-us">

	<head>
		<meta charset="UTF-8" />
		<title>test</title>
	
	<body>
		bla
	</body>
</html>

As you can see there's no </head> but still it validates:
