Description

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. :-)
