Ah, hm, sorry about that. But I suspect you're right and you're better off reproducing the bugs you want in a private journal entry!

I was thinking of XHTML (because that's what we do here, theoretically), indeed. Not sure if implicit closing tags are illegal, but they're definitely morally wrong. 8-) You can validate your HTML 4.0 here if you want, but I'm afraid I don't have the energy to test it (or ferret through documentation) at the moment... sorry, just too lazy!

I'm fairly sure implicit closing tags for table rows are still legal in HTML 4.01. The DTD says e.g.
<!ELEMENT TR - O (TH|TD)+ -- table row -->
where the "O" means optional IIRC

Aha, I've reproduced the problem. My defence didn't trigger because you put a tag on this entry: the bit of HTML that handles tags appears to be glued on to the entry's own HTML before my style code gets to process it, which means my defence code didn't see </tr> at the end of that string because it was somewhere in the middle.

Sigh. I'm not even sure I can compensate for that in my style code, since it would require me to do a much fuller job of HTML parsing; I may just have to fall back to the traditional method of whinging at people who trigger the bug :-/
