   No this is not legal HTML.

  "When script or style data is the content of an element (SCRIPT and
  STYLE), the data begins immediately after the element start tag and ends
  at the first ETAGO ("</") delimiter followed by a name start character
  ([a-zA-Z]); note that this may not be the element's end tag. Authors
  should therefore escape "</" within the content. Escape mechanisms
  are specific to each scripting or style sheet language."

time again. Especially it can be delivered by any content provider where I

  broken content can be delivered by anybody. But nobody is then garanteed to
parse it correctly.
