MAC widget error (version 1.1)

To: html-tidy@w3.org
Can you please help me understand this error?

Code entered to tidy:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN"
"http://www.w3.org/TR/html14/strict.dtd">
<html lang="en">
<head>
<title>Welcome to BrianRedmond.net</title>
<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />
<link rel="shortcut icon" href="http://www.brianredmond.net/favico/ricon.ico" /> 

</head>

<body>

<p>Coming soon...</p>

</body>
</html>

Results repeatedly (even trying to modify from strict to transitional) in the following error:

Info: Document content looks like HTML 4.01 Strict
0 warnings, 1 error were found!

This document has errors that must be fixed before
using HTML Tidy to generate a tidied up version.

Did I not just set the DOCTYPE as HTML 4.01 Strict?  I'm about ready to delete this widget.  I thought it would be helpful, but it's just frustrating.
