Re: Subversion HTML pages are invalid.

Lack of a DOCTYPE is invalid no matter what SGML based markup language
you are using.

User-agents WILL assume such things, but they only do this to overcome
invalid documents.

Simply because most user-agents are able to process this invalid
"tag-soup" does not mean it is any more valid.
