Please see

On line 38 you have an <p> start tag and a </p> end tag -- which is all good --
but then on line 39 you have a </p> end tag without a <p> start tag.

For validating HTML5 documents, please consider using
http://validator.w3.org/nu/ instead.

> Actual error is:
> No p element in scope but a p end tag seen.

Right -- that's because you don't have any <p> start tag on line 39.
