My colleague had the same thought, but I think that is not a problem. 
The HTML 4.01 recommendation is from Christmas 1999. I don't really see 
any reason why they should have changed it once it worked good enough. 
Of course website programmers might have come up with other forms of 
weirdness in the code by now, but I can easily imagine that this is not 
a problem if the original parser was robust enough.
