The problem here is that you're sending this "valid xhtml 1.0" file as text/html from your server.  <style /
> is interpreted as an unclosed <style> by the html parser (/ is ignored as an invalid attribute).  WebKit 
has trouble with unclosed tags in the <head> it seems (there is another similar bug on an unclosed 
<title> causing a blank page).  IF you were to actually vend this file as xhtml from your server, it would 
display fine (as you see in the second copy of your test case, now attached).

So this is a bug in two places.  1.  your server is misconfigured (as are most on the web), or rather, you've 
named the file .html when it really shoudl be .xhtml on your server.  2.  there seems to be a bug in WebKit 
where we don't recover from an unclosed <style> tag in html.

We'll keep this bug to track the unclosed <style> tag behavior.
