 Valid code is important not just to formally meet the specification, but
 also to
 ensure user agents, including assistive technologies, can accurately
 and parse content. When HTML elements are not used in the recommended way,
 user agents may render them in unexpected ways. It can also become a
 problem for
 compatibility with older or even future browsers, devices, or other
 See W3C WCAG 4.1.1.

 Props takayukister, aryamaaru.
