Nick,

If that is the total of your document then the problem is that you don't have 
a single element root for the document.

But assuming it is part of a longer document ....

You have omitted the "/" before the ">" at the end of the second and third 
meta elements. Later in the document an XML processor will be expecting end 
tags for the two meta elements.

I hope that helps.

If that doesn't solve it then can you say which software is giving you the 
error message and exactly what the error message is. And also post a fuller 
version of the code.
