[whatwg] Please make < inside tags a parse error

Message-ID: <4A5E1965-7AEF-4733-80C4-8E9543692367@iki.fi>
The new treatment of < inside tags is
  * Potentially very confusing for authors
  * Different from previous de jure parsing
  * Different from what shipped Gecko and WebKit do.

Therefore, please add an entry for < to tag name state, before  
attribute name state, attribute name state, after attribute name  
state and attribute value (unquoted) state:

U+003C LESS-THAN SIGN (<)
   Parse error. Then treat according to the "Anything else" entry below.
