Given that <html>, </html>, <head>, </head>, <body> and </body> are all  
optional in the language it didn't seem logical to make this a parse  
error. I like to believe I'm correct in that interpretation.  
(Incidentally, I also wrote the implementation. Incidentally, this was  
tested against testcases written by Hixie himself.)
