Errors of this type have nothing to do with HTML validation.

GNUN barfs with such Guile backtraces when the `make-prototype' script
is unable to extract the meaningful (the translatable) part of the
article.  Typically, this is because the article's HTML
markup/structure does not follow some established boilerplate fu.
More specifically, this regexp:

  ^(.*?)(<title>.*)(</div>.*<div id=\"footer\">.*)(<p>.*?[$]Date:.*)$

AFAICS ineiev has fixed it, so nothing to worry about it in this case.

As a TODO item, perhaps we should teach gnun-validate-html to report
such issues (while still exiting successfully if the article is valid
HTML).  Even though they are entirely unrelated to its task, I bet
many www-discuss subscribers find this error report rather awkward and
unhelpful.
