Human-readable HTML -- by Eugene Reimer 2010-January

There is a conflict in the world of the world-wide-web between those who like simplicity and those who don't. 

I like to use a text-editor to compose and edit webpages.  I want my HTML, CSS, Javascript to be simple, human-readable, human-editable.  And I want standards making that possible.

Why is there such an enormous difference between the language accepted by real-world browsers and the language accepted by the w3c validator?  For human-editable HTML to regain respectability we need for optional ending-tags to remain optional, for the quoting of operands to be optional subject to some simple requirements.  The major browsers all accept the of sort language I'm describing.  What we need is a validator that does.
