Description Simon Pieters 2009-03-26 15:04:16 CET
In streaming mode, <html>x<html b> gives a fatal error but <html a>x<html b> does not. Same for body.

<html a>x<html a> doesn't need to be fatal.

This is a spec compliance bug. The parsed tree should be <html a="" b="">... but is <html a="">... If you can't do the former in streaming mode the only other option the spec gives you is fatal error.
