They > did not, but the 3WC validator did. xalan (and any other XSLT engine) doesn't know _anything_ about HTML at all: it just generates the nodes that you specify so it won't catch any html errors. Neither mozilla nor IE use a validating HTML parser, they are designed to render any hand-authored junk that is thrown at them.... If you are generating XHTML rather than XML then the XML parser in mozilla is non validating, so also won't catch validation errors.. The XML parser in IE can validate if you turn on validation from script, but by default it is non validating, and by default the output of XSLT (even if specified as being xml) goes to the html parser not the xml one.
