CSS validation: 1 small unexplainable error: why ????

Post by bobthebob01 » Tue Apr 24, 2007 10:53 am

Hello,
can anyone explain me why i get this error when i try to validate my html code. it's seems to me that the error pointed should not be there, i need to close my statement, here is the error message i get from the w3c validator:

This page is not Valid HTML 4.01 Transitional!

Below are the results of attempting to parse this document with an SGML parser.

  1. Error Line 5 column 73: character data is not allowed here.

      ...e" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1"/ >

      You have used character data somewhere it is not permitted to appear. Mistakes that can cause this error include putting text directly in the body of the document without wrapping it in a container element (such as a aragraph) or forgetting to quote an attribute value (where characters such as "%" and "/" are common, but cannot appear without surrounding quotes).



i really don't understand.

thanks for your help

cheers

julien
