@ambignostic An authoring error …which browsers handle just fine (and always have; one of HTML’s greatest strengths, in my opinion).

@mhmli Yes, of course. Browsers ignore what they don’t understand. That’s the very strength of HTML.

@alastc It was a typo …which browsers ignored without throwing an error (and continue to do).
