According to to default style sheet for HTML, the HEAD should be invisible Look at that page: http://www.eleves.ens.fr/home/rineau/bugzilla.html and you will see that a non-empty child of the HEAD element is visible. (I use M17 on linux, build ID: 2000080712).
Parser is probably terminating HEAD based on either unknown tag or character data. That seems wrong, and bad for forward-compat.

Yes David, you seem to be right: on a second version of my example page (see http://www.eleves.ens.fr/home/rineau/bugzilla2.html), I have put all the body in the HEAD element and all is displayed, with HTML formating.
Hark: DBaron argued for non-strictness, got it, then doesn't like it. :) This is in fact backward compatible behavior, and works like both IE and nav. Marking wont fix. By the way, we close the head once we find any content that can be put in the body (ignoring ws/lf).

VERIFIED. The document is invalid and we are acting in a backwards-compatible manner. No problem visible here, move along now. :-)
