2. IMG and HR tags are not allowed in pre sections. I recomend changing the

1. yes I agree that's a bug 2. there are IndexOptions to make the output HTML3.2 compliant (which fix    those issues in particular) 3. if you use the appropriate IndexOptions, the output *will* validate with    validator.w3.org 
Comment 2 nutso 2002-07-16 22:04:04 UTC
I probably should clarify that point three only applies to table view.

Item 1 has been fixed in 2.1 and is proposed for backport.
Item 2 ... ehm? what standard? html? agreed. ;-) As said you can use
IndexOptions to fix that issues. For backwards compat we should stick with the
current defaults.
Item 3 doesn't appear in the current tree so I'm assuming it fixed already.

I'm marking this report as fixed. Thanks for using Apache!

FYI: it's now merged into the 2.0 stable tree and will be in the next release.
