Thank you for your patch.

Such a change will significantly modify typical rendering of error 
pages, so I would rather refrain from it unless there are more 
practical reasons than triggering standards-complaint mode instead 
of quirks mode - which does no seem to make any difference for 
pages nginx generates.
