This function is not an HTML validator, so we shouldn't be too pedantic in
this area.  Some HTML files downloaded from the web might be invalid, but
I definitely don't want to correct all them nor try to find their authors
and convince them to fix HTML syntax.  I just need to read downloaded HTML
files in Emacs with the auto-detection of the coding system and without
much hassle.
