But of course it is an Embperl problem, because it is not me, but Embperl
putting in the invalid stuff. I know about all the XHTML rules and follow
them but Embperl isn't. Embperl changes HTML pages behing my back, that
is the whole problem. This is one of the nice features of Embperl that it
is doing this, but in this case it leads to the problems I described.
