           Summary: Problem with incorrectly nested HTML tags
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 412+
          Platform: Macintosh
        OS/Version: All
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Layout and Rendering
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at opendarwin.org

If a "bold" tag is not closed in the current nesting element, but in a later element, safari ignores it.  Here 
is a mini example (I hope bugzilla displays the HTML correctly):


The second "plain" is plain in firefox and opera, as expexted, but safari makes it bold.  In safari, it is 
not possible to close the b tag after p and div have closed.

Of course, the HTML is invalid, but safari should deal with it.  Making the second "plain" plain and not 
bold would be the expected behavior.

The problem occurred in a web forum where one user used a b tag in his posting, but did not close it.  
The posting was automatically enclosed in p and div tags.  Now, all subsequent postings were in bold 
font (see http://wahnzeit.libsyn.com/index.php?post_id=38396&comments=on).
