Barry --

Ran into some HTML bugs in 2.0.13. For instance, going to the
listinfo/mailman-subscribers page and subscribing, it returns the
"confirmation is required" warning.

It looks good, but view source it. An unterminated "<BODY" tag, followed by
a second body tag with a bgcolor, followed by a third body tag a couple of
lines later.

There are also two /body tags, and the <title> is in the body, not in the

While it seems to format okay in browsers, it's seriously broken HTML, and
it's driving mod_layout nuts, since it depends on the body tags to do
header/footer insertions right. I think there's one other generated page
with similar problems, too, but I'm not sure which it is yet.


<BODY bgcolor="#ffffff">
<!-- $Revision: 1.3 $ -->
<title>Mailman-Users Subscription results</title>
<h1>Mailman-Users Subscription results</h1>
