I believe that under SGML rules the ";" on the end of an entity is
optional when followed by a character that can not be part of an entity
(such as "<").

As for:

        <!-- The following line contains an error the validator does not
        catch [ no close bracket on 'tr' ] (second of two) -->
        </td> </tr><tr ><td class=date>9

I fail to see the missing ">".
