Broken HTML Support

I'd propose that YADIS take no "official" position -- at least at  
this time -- on this issue. It's virtually impossible to be crisp on  
an issue like that ...

Reasonable implementation guidelines (non-normative) might be:

1) if broken HTML is displayed as something reasonable in a  
reasonably standard browser, a user will expect that any identity  
markup in this page will be similarly understood by a YADIS  
implementation, just like the broken HTML is understood by the browser.

2) if the YADIS implementation cannot make sense out of the (broken)  
HTML, it displays a reasonable error message that indicates that.
