Re: error code when insering a video using video tag

I’m not sure it adds them in the DOM tree: My impression is that they 
are not possible to style, in Amaya.

Also, "less strict" doesn’t seem like the correct word — I’m not sure 
it can be justified that it delete anything when using the XHTML parser 
- that seems like a bug too.

Btw, for the HTML4 mode, it is even possible to change the DOCTYPE 
(manually, in the source view) to the HTML5 doctype - <!DOCTYPE html>.
