The errors I am most likely to make are:<b><b>something</b></b>
ditto em strong var
message: duplicate, unnecessary <br><span class="x"><span class="x>thin</span></span>
I means I hit the key to embed a style some kind twice.
message: duplicate, unnecessary <span<span class="x"></span>
message: empty span
This is more serious. It means I probably put the span around some empty space instead of the thing I intended.<span class="narrow"> </span>
is legit. A span may be controlling the width of the space.
for me <b><!-- macro Acronym URL --></b
> is legit. Anything starting <!-- macro
will expand later to text.
However <b><!-- top left block --></b>
is an empty <b>
In the Compactor I permit a list regexes that describe the start of comments that later generate text. These can't be treated as ordinary comments.
