The Jack Bauer example has validation issues (using http://validator.nu/)

My fix:

This is just a convenient format, not a patch...

Apart from this I get validation errors in this and many other examples  
because the meta and link elements aren't allowed in the contexts where  
they are used, but I suspect this is just validator.nu being in need of  
fixing (waiting for new account email so I can report).
