Single incorrect closing leads to tons of error messages.

Hello Validator,

 

As I make my own webpages, I am a frequent user of the validation service.
A known problem for any validator (syntax checker) is to re-synchronize
after an error (working in the IT I know how hard it is).  But in this case
a single mistake led to 61 error messages.  Some attention to
re-synchronization (prioritizing on syntax elements) is warranted for.

 

The mistake was in the beginning of the document:

<h1>Some header</h2>

After that, every <P> or </P> led to an error message.

 

The -now corrected-  page was:

Keep up to good work,
kind regards,
Philip van Diemen
