Default error pages are not valid HTML

It is by accident.

It contains XHTML syntax <hr />.  That is an SGML abbreviated form that is valid
only due to a defect in the HTML specs (see for example
http://valet.webthing.com/page/parsemode.html for explanation).  Any truly
compliant browser will display the closing ">" as text after the horizontal
rule.  Since that is clearly not the intention, it is relying on tag-soup parsing.

Replace that with HTML <hr> and it becomes valid without relying on SHORTTAGS.
