This is a discussion on html header and html body within the Tech Board forums, part of the Community Boards category; But how does standard say whether content not wrapped in header and also not wrapped in body belongs to header ...
Compilers can produce warnings - make the compiler programmers happy: Use them!
Please don't PM me for help - and no, I don't do help over instant messengers.
I quoted the HTML 4 spec. It says that for all of html, head and body, both the start and the end tags are optional. So the elements exist whether the tags are there or not, and all that's left is to correctly sort the subelements into head and body.
For the HTML 5 spec, look at 18.104.22.168 for when it's allowable to omit the start tags of html, head and body.
For parsing, look at 22.214.171.124 and 126.96.36.199 and following. Note that the note in 188.8.131.52 is incorrect.
All the buzzt!
