Try browsing moinmoin pages with konqueror or, if you're
really masochistic, piping them through
http://validator.w3.org/
konqueror especially has big problems with <a name> tags
without proper </a>

Proper XHTML would be *really* cool, but anything
rendering correctly (and looking good) will do for the start.

I'd send a patch (looking at MoinMoin/formatter/text*.py it
doesn't seem too difficult), but I have zero Python
knowledge..

    This is a really good idea. The non-conformant HTML-output
    severely limits the usage of own cascading style sheets, e.g.

    a
    {
    text-decoration: underline;
    }

    yields some very ugly results in the page preview.

    that issue is currently being addressed in development
    branch moin--main--1.2 (together with themeing and css work)
    - we already have some stuff validating at w3c, but some
    issues may remain until the parser gets changed.
