The objective of the package is to provide a fast and essential HTML check
(esp. for CGI scripts where response time is important) to prevent a piece
of user input HTML code from messing up the rest of a file, i.e., to
minimize and localize any possible damage created by including a piece of
user input HTML text in a dynamic document.
HTMLQuickCheck checks for unmatched < and >, unmatched tags and improper
nesting, which could ruin the rest of the document. Attributes and
elements with optional end tags are not checked, as they should not cause
disasters with any decent browsers (they should ignore any unrecognized
tags and attributes according to the standard). A piece of HTML that
passes HTMLQuickCheck may not necessarily be valid HTML, but it would be
very unlikely to screw others but itself. A valid piece of HTML that
doesnt pass the HTMLQuickCheck is however very likely to screw many
browsers(which are obviously broken in terms of strict conformance).
HTMLQuickCheck currently supports HTML 1.0, 2.x (draft), 3.0 (draft) and
netscape extensions (1.1).
