Hello everybody

I have a document with a table in it. When I run it through the HTML
validator I get one error:


--------------------------------
Line 47, column 79:

<table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="1" width="140">

Error: document type does not allow element "TABLE" here; missing one of
"APPLET", "OBJECT", "MAP", "IFRAME", "BUTTON" start-tag

--------------------------------

I wonder why i get this error ... and I hope someone can help me.

This is the dokument:
