"tagsoup" == Fote parser
"sortasgml" == Klaus parser

(however, "tagsoup" is Klaus' version of Fote parser, and there are some
differences, in part because Klaus' version uses table entries in some
places to drive logic that Fote's 2.7.2 does explicitly).

They're different mainly (from my point of view) by Fote's version does
error recovery differently, not popping the stack of tag-types quite so
readily as Klaus' when an unexpected type is found.
