Yeah, same here mate, I've seen lots of sites with invalid markup rank really well, but I wasn't sure if it was a deciding factor Google uses to rank sites.
Thanks a lot for that link buddy. It would seem that small errors such as those that would be valid in HTML1.0 but not in HTML5 wouldn't matter too much, as long as the site or page passed cross-browser testing, since most modern browsers are able to deal with those kind of errors
