Yes, and it made me wonder a while when I began to write dsssl code.
But the fact that they are not written does not mean that they are not
there, due to the dsssl architecture. This is the tag minimization

Just for the fun, try this:
echo "Hello Haakon" | tidy

I am aware that tidy is not a validator, but, asuming that the greeting
is HTML, it is able to build a correct HTML document, using this set of
rules: only body is mandatory and tags can be omitted. 

So, you get:
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 3.2//EN">
    <meta name="generator" content=
    "HTML Tidy for Linux/x86 (vers 1st March 2002), see">

Well, I am wondering if this is not a bit off-topic.
