They won't be conforming. In due course I'd expect to see implementations
of the HTML5 parsing model be made available. (I've now made a test
implementation and tested it against several gigabytes of HTML, and it was
quite easy to do and seems to give desirable DOM trees -- they are
slightly more IE compatible than Safari and Mozilla DOMs, while still
being compatible with the Safari/Mozilla approaches. I haven't finished
my studies yet though.)
