Compilers can produce warnings - make the compiler programmers happy: Use them!

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 220.127.116.11 for when it's allowable to omit the start tags of html, head and body.
For parsing, look at 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124 and following. Note that the note in 126.96.36.199 is incorrect.
All the buzzt!
