Rule described here:

  the data [ snip ] ends at the first ETAGO ("</") delimiter
  followed by a name start character ([a-zA-Z]);

So if the first letter after the '</' is another than [a-zA-Z], then it 
is safe to include '</' in the code. E.g. 

  this works: <script type='text/html'></ <script>
but this not: <script type='text/html'></A<script>

I did not know that </ was OK to use when not followed by the Aa-Zz 
range. Thanks for that.
