I hear you, brother. I actally have seen something like:
<a href="http://www.example<br>.com">something</a>. The client said "It
looked fine to me when I looked at it in the browser".

This is one of the good things about serving application/xhtml+xml.
When a broswer like Opera or Firefox encounters malformed markup, it
won't render the page. IE doesn't understand application/xhtml+xml, it
has to have text/html, and therefore will not choke on bad markup such
as that above. At the time, my client was IE only (I have since trained
her to use Firefox - Opera is just too "techy" for her).
