filter_html lets through malformed tags

Reported by Jason Garber | July 17th, 2008 @ 10:37 AM | in 4.0

RedCloth.new("<script src=http://ha.ckers.org/xss.js></script", [:filter_html]).to_html

Comes out unfiltered as: "<script src=http://ha.ckers.org/xss.js></script"

A security liability since a browser would handle the malformed script tag.
