Good you understand the difference. So many people don't.

For the record, it is a *lot* easier to ensure that output is 
well-formed than ensure that it is valid. For my own purposes, I am 
happy to stop at well-formedness. I don't mind validity if I get iut, 
but it's not essential.

If WordPress can guarantee well-formedness, that's worth doing on its 
own, even if it can't guarantee full validity.
