I remarked, that the html validator accepted a page as valid in HTML 4.01 Strict and also
Transitional even though it hadn't the closing body and html tags at the end.
When I used HTML 4.01 Frameset the validator told me, that it had arrived at the end of the page
and was missing the closing tags.

To reproduce this bug:

Testpage with a complete table, start and end tags but afterwards no closing body or html tag
For this purpose I wrote a small page, see below, and tested it with the validator and no error
was found.

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN">
  <meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
  <title>Testpage for W3C Validator bug</title>
  <tr><td><!-- Some content --></td></tr>
<!-- Here is the end of the page - missing tags: </body></html> -->

Funny debugging!
