Yeah, but it could turn into not even valid HTML(that is, tag soup). Browsers 
eat tag soup for breakfest(that sounds wrong, and so it is), so probably it 
will come out in some acceptable way at the user's end. But of course, the 
programmer lost his respect by cooking it.

Nope, not that I have a clean solution for all this(beyond hitting the 
original content producer with a stick).
