Pages not validating

Omegatron
There's some bug in site rendering that lets it mismatch tags
(<p><small></p></small>), which makes the page invalid XML, so it
can't be used to do AJAX-type things.  This was making all edit pages
invalid XHTML on Commons because of a bug in the edittools box.  See:

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/MediaWiki_talk:Edittools#This_page_is_breaking_validation

I thought the rendered HTML was passed through a validator/cleaner
program after rendering?  Maybe this isn't used on things in the
Mediawiki: namespace?

There's also a bug that seems to involve over-correcting the markup
and adding an extra <p><br></p> sometimes.  I've filed it as
http://bugzilla.wikimedia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=4843  Are these related
at all?

Tidy has been disabled for UI message display for performance reasons.
