[New-bugs-announce] [issue12629] HTMLParser silently stops parsing with malformed attributes

New submission from Kevin Stock <teoryn at gmail.com>:

Given the input '<x><y z=""o"" /></x>', HTMLParser only detects the opening x tag, and then stops parsing. Ideally this should behave like the case '<x><y z="""" /></x>' which raises an error and then can continue parsing the close x tag.
