yep. Those are wrongly formed

I believe Xenu uses IE's rendering agent, since it can be reliably
found on a windows installation. This means that Xenu will function
like IE will. If Tilman could add the option to use the Gecko
(Firefox, Netscape, etc.) agent, then we'd have better support for
standards. If he could *embed* it, it would be even better, but I'm
betting that's a much harder prospect than simply changing a few lines
