You people have a bizarre definition of where an error occurs. Line 40,
standing alone, was perfectly valid. Therefore by any normal logic, any
error recognized at line 40 either occurred previously, or is a
consequence of an error spanning multiple lines that include line 40.
The validator has no problem pointing back to an opening tag on a
previous line when a required end tag is missing, so why can't it point
out or at least allude to some mistake on a previous line?
