Looks like it is complaining about the </meta> which is trying to
close an already closed <meta />. (The last opened element that is
still open at that point is the <head>).

I suggest you try the Markup Validator first.

I also suggest you reread the XHTML specification paying special
attention to sections 4.8 and all of Appendix C (you would be likely
better off using HTML 4.01 though).
