Re: [NotaBUG] Character encoding not detected correctly with SGML SHORTTAG

This is yet another reason - over and above the usual SHORTTAG FAQs -
to make warning about shortags the default validator behaviour.

Is there anything in the HTML spec (as opposed to a bug in the DTD)
that justifies allowing shorttags?  ISTM that browser behaviour alone
is a strong enough reason to ban them.
