Yes, I should've clarified: after fixing the URL I used tidy[0] and it 
spotted only two warnings:

# tidy -e contrib/tor-exit-notice.html 
line 1 column 1 - Warning: missing <!DOCTYPE> declaration
line 40 column 1 - Warning: <img> lacks "alt" attribute

After fixing these two, I assumed the document was now valid, but your 
comment made me double check with the "official" validator[1] - and it
failed miserably :-\

After playing around with a newer version of "tidy" and a lot of editing,
the document appears to be valid now. As the patch is rather big now (due
to line breaks, the content did not change), I've attached the .html as

 In terms of applicable law, the best way to understand Tor is to consider it a
