That does not allow one tag which contains others to be closed before
the others have closed...  that is what I thought they called an
ERROR... :)  I would hope that instead of guessing, logic would be
applied, and the simplest way out would be taken, since the <TT> is
inside the <I>, and the <I> has now been closed, logic says "there is
no way to leave the <TT> open...  but this would not be the first thing
that followed logic...
