I'm the maintainer of Beautiful Soup. I learned about this issue when one of my users filed a bug for it against Beautiful Soup (

BeautifulSoupHTMLParser (my subclass of html.parser.HTMLParser) implements error() only to prevent the NotImplementedError raised by ParserBase.error(). The docstring for my error() implementation says: "this method is called only on very strange markup and our best strategy is to pretend it didn't happen and keep going."

It shouldn't affect Beautiful Soup if, in a future version of Python, HTMLParser.error is never called and ParserBase is removed.
