"Why should I care if my document is in correct HTML? It displays all 
right on my browser.

All browsers know how to deal with correct HTML. However, if it is 
incorrect, the browser has to repair the document, and since not all 
browsers repair documents in the same way, this introduces differences, 
so that your document may look and work differently on different 
browsers. Since there are hundreds of different browsers, and more 
coming all the time (not only on PCs, but also on PDAs, mobile phones, 
televisions, printers, even refrigerators), it is impossible to test 
your document on every browser. If you use incorrect HTML and your 
document doesn't work on a particular browser, it is your fault; if you 
use correct HTML and it doesn't work, it is a bug in the browser."
