I've been looking at the code and trying some things. Changing various
settings for XmlViolationPolicy doesn't seem to help. I'm now looking
at generateImpliedEndTags() in
XHTML doesn't have implied end tags, would this be a place to give an
error for polyglot documents?
It seems also that EMPTY_ATTRIBUTENAMES in HtmlAttributes.java is
another place where patches have to go.
Am I even looking in the right places?
