Yes, Ezio’s commits on html.parser/HTMLParser in the last months have
been following the HTML5 spec. Ezio, RDM and I have had some discussion
about that on some bug reports, IRC and private mail and reached the
agreement to do the useful thing, that is follow HTML5 and not pretend
that the stdlib parser is strict or validating.
Ezio was thinking about a blog.python.org post to advertise this.
