More importantly, <plaintext> will cause an error along the lines of:
<plaintext> element is not a valid element in HTML5. You should use the
<pre> element and escape '<' characters with '<'.
...(where the '<' character is only mentioned because the content has one
-- it would mention '&' characters if there were any of those, too, etc.)
So any other bug -- like the missing EOF -- is quite minor. :-)
