... and the </a> too, if that wasn't clear.
Created attachment 131672 [details] reporter's testcase worksforme with linux trunk 20030916 and 1.4
It was related to, as mentioned, to Bug #100930 (sorry that I never found the duplicate). And my listed test code was off as an <a href="">Bleh</a> must exist for the issue to be recreatable. The HTML itself was sound however (<ul><a name="creation"><li></li></a> was in fact <h2><a href="creation"/>Links</h2>, all tags are correctly ordered, confirmed by the W3C validator).
> The HTML itself was sound however The reason the validator treats this HTML as valid is that the validator sees <a href="creation"/> as exactly equivalent to <a href="creation"></a>> which is what the HTML spec says it means. I suspect you would be pretty upset if browsers actually followed the spec here, though, since it would make a random '>' character appear in your text. So the parser does not support NET (which is this business of closing a tag with '/' in HTML), and then the <a> is not closed and fun ensues. Now if this were an XML document then the <a> would be properly closed (since in XML "/>" closes a tag, unlike in HTML where '/' closes a tag), but it's not an XML document.
