Hello!
I get "HTML1509 unmatched end tag" warning in Edge browser. Is it something to worry about or just disregard as non-issue?

I've read online that it's just MS browsers are being to fussy about little things...

Well, you could paste the offending HTML into a real validator and hope it gives you more useful information.

But is it giving you this message when you're just browsing along like any normal human, minding your own business--or did you switch the browser to Developer mode (whatever Edge calls it) and forgot you'd done so? Is 1509 the line number?

Browsers are supposed to be forgiving of errors in html and css. It's their job.

No, 1509 is not a line number. It's probably a warning code in Edge. What I did I pressed F12 key and I got to Console.
