Browser homepages and validation

Interesting yet possibly completely trivial discovery: Both and validate to XHTML 1.0 Strict. The Camino homepage tries for XHTML 1.0 Transitional, but fails because someone failed to close a line break, using <br> instead of <br />.

Safari’s page does pretty good, but comes out with 3 errors when trying for HTML 4.01 Transitional. It also has a lot of warnings because of their use if &#146; in place of &apos; or apostrophes and &#151; instead of &mdash;

The IE 7 homepage doesn’t even try to come anywhere near valid and succeeds wonderfully at that with 208 errors including not even including a DOCTYPE declaration.
