well, the short-close is not valid in HTML 4.0 (I don't think
officially it is anyway) so that would not really make it a bug.
but... most browsers out there (IE and Safari notably) are very
forgiving to invalid markup, as they should be. So I would say it is a
shortcoming of Mozilla. I think Firefox 1.0 is more graceful around
these things. the choke I've seen in older firefoxes breaks the whole
layout of a page.
