I recently found a problem (by hand) with a web page that refused to display 
correctly in IE6 or Netscape 6.2 (was fine in many other browsers)  It turned 
out to be a missing ">" on a href, but strangely the validator (both command 
line and web-based) failed to spot it .. and declared the page valid ... 

shall I post a test case, or is this known-behaviour and already in hand?
