We should insist that anything shipped on the net and described
as conforming HTML is normalized a la DTD.

That doesn't stop parsers being tolerant of unnormalized stuff.
These keyboarding aids are just a poor man's HTML editor. Others will use  
editor macros etc.   SGML is not going to survive by pretending to be a  
keyborad entry format.  (They also look horrible to me but then so do a number  
of aspects of SGML... )
