Yes, I agree. 

I thought of checking if the code is autogenerated, by any non-standard-means not adhering to W3C specs.

Hang on a moment. We're on crossed wires here.

My html5 document was incorrect - I already knew this and it has since been fixed.

The point of my posting is that the W3C validator was not dealing with the invalid document in a gracefully manner. It just crashed.  And since it's in beta I thought I should report this fact.

In my case the document was well formed xml and it only failed due to a schema conflict.  In this particular case, I believe the validator should
have reported the document error instead of crashing.    I understand that
it can't deal with every conceivable messed up document and a crash is always a possibility however it would have been more useful to me (and other
users) if the validator could have at least hinted at the position in the document where it stop processing.

By the way, have you used any generators like Microsoft-Word to generate this HTML-document?

Can you post the URL of your document? I cannot reconstruct the problem by using the tag in a minimal document, whether I used HTML5 or XHTML 1.0.
