Hi Andreas,

Note that I do not want anybody to help me.  I am only reporting
what I believe is a bug in the HTML5 W3C validator.

I do not have that bug with other validators.
And if I do a HTML 4.01 validation with the W3C validator, there is
no problem.  That's why I suspect something is wrong with HTML5 only.

As I told you, I do not manage to write *minimal* examples.
I do not know how I could help you more!

I manage to remove a few sentences but when I remove too many of them,
there is no validation error (and when there is no validation error,
there is no correlation with the sentence I have just deleted because
putting it again and removing another one leads to no error while
keeping both of them leads to an error -- and they are mere sentences,
without any HTML tag withing them!).

Try to validate:

It is sometimes valid, sometimes invalid.
I have even done a diff between the two W3C outputs (no CSS in the copy
of the result) and they are the same for the source code seen:


Has anyone ever experienced a similar behaviour?
Try to validate 10 times the page above.  Do you see 10 successes??
