The number of problems produced by this bug can be greatly reduced by adding a relatively small check to the parser. Currently, <script> and <style> tags call set_cdata_mode(), which sets self.interesting to HTMLParser.interesting_cdata. This is bad because it searches for ANY closing tag, rather than a closing tag which matches the opening tag.

Alexander's fix solved about half the problem, but it didn't handle ending tags as text. I've fixed this and added some tests.

This is my first patch, so if there's a better way that I could be submitting this, input would be appreciated.
