New submission from Yugang LIU <liuyug at yahoo.cn>:


I parse html source with htmlparser. I catch a tag, br, issue. 

my code :
parse result:
begin tag: div
begin tag: br
end tag: div

So I can't find end tag of 'br'. I know it is invalid text, '<br>', it set htmlparser parameter, strict, to 'False', it can't help me also. 

Please help fix it. Thanks.
