  describe  "not handling very well"

paphio:~/XML -> xmllint --html --noout a.html
paphio:~/XML ->

  absolutely no error reported here.

Try without the --noout switch and you can see that the output is not the file's contents. I discovered that there's an 0xA0 character which screws up the parsing...

root# ./xmllint --html a.html
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 3.2//EN">
<meta content="HTML Tidy for Solaris (vers 1st September 2004), see www.w3.org" name="generator">

  libxml2 will generate SAX error callbacks, ignore the error callbacks
