Poorly formed HTML in Researcher ID pages

[ Edited ]

I was trying to figure out why a researcherID page wasn't google-able, and I tried to validate the HTML output by the ResearcherID product.

The google situation was resolved in a different thread.

But the HTML?
It is, to say the least, poorly formed. It is so bad that the forum won't let me paste it into this window.
See the attachment ot view what the top of the page reveal codes looks like on one of my organization's Researcher ID pages:

To make this HTML properly formed, it should have:

  • A doctype statement FIRST;
  • An html statement soon thereafter (only 1!)
  • A head tag that encloses everything after the html tag and before the <body> tag;

I think it's safe to say that this bad coding technique is not helping your browser rendering issues.

Do you plan to make Researcher ID validate, or at least be well-formed HTML in some very basic sense?
