I agree. Surely, however, fatal errors were never the point here - I thought
the basic principle was that if a document conforms to the HTML specification,
user agents that implement the specification will parse and render it in a
Also, user agents are only a subset of HTML processors: the specification
equally applies to authoring tools, where the "be strict in what you emit,
liberal in what you accept" principle suggests stronger syntactic validation
HTML has always required user agents to handle non-conforming markup
gracefully, as far back at least as HTML 2.0, if memory serves.
