Thank you for the hint, that settles it for me.  So, in fact, what we can
know for sure at this point is that this particular parsing behavior for
this particular HTML element is strongly recommended (SHOULD) by the *HTML
4.01 Specification*, and is *therefore* observed by the W3C Validator.  It
is not necessarily a requirement by the SGML standard.  That makes a lot
more sense to me than the far-fetched alternative suggested elsewhere in
this thread.
BTW, it is recommended to use another leading character (`|' is common) to
mark third-party quotes, so that they are not easily confused with
quotations from the thread.  I have modified your text as quoted here

Not with javascript. Nonsense propagates like wildfire in this field.
