Though this is most certainly a contentious feature, this is not a bug
in the parser, but a bug in the template itself.  The parser is a bit
stricter than most browsers.  If you don't agree, please read the HTML
4.01 specification very carefully before following up; this has been
discussed to death many times.

No, that won't work; the *template* still has the same bug.  Try this:

<script type="text/javascript">
   document.write('<'+'div id="LOADING_DOCUMENT_HINT">Loading document.
Please be patient...<'+'/div>');

(Note that the break introduced in the script source is between the
"<" and the next character.)
