Plus the fact that valid doesn't mean bigger. :) but that's unrelated.  
The initial argument of Ian was moot.

   Anyhow, the result is a valid HTML 4.01
   Strict file that is 3 902 bytes large.
   Google’s invalid kinda-HTML 2.something
   very-loose is 4 944 bytes. The valid and
   strict version is 1 042 bytes smaller.
   That’s 21 percent savings on bandwidth costs.
