I believe that there is a bug in the html validator if you have a noscript 
element in the head element.

Consider the html page below, which yields 2 errors when I try and use the 
w3 validator (http://validator.w3.org/file-upload.html):

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" 


		<meta http-equiv="content-language" content="en-us">
		<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">

		<title>Validator Bug</title>

		<script type="text/javascript">
			(something will go in here later...)
			// -->
			<p>Your browser does not support JavaScript, so this page will NOT 



If you cut out the noscript element, then it validates perfectly fine.

But I believe that it -should- validate, as I took that noscript element 
directly from the w3 html spec 

Please get back to me if you can confirm this bug!  (Or let me know that I 
made a brain dead mistake...)
