small HTML 4.01 validation bug?

Hello,

I am trying to validate an HTML document using this service:

http://validator.w3.org/file-upload.html

I receive an error in error:


<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="agrinetweb.css" />

^
Error: text is not allowed here; try wrapping the text in a more descriptive
container


At least I believe that's an error.  I thought HTML was supposed to accept
XHTML combined opening/closing tags.  My HTML doc type is:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN">

My link tag appears as it should within properly formed head tags.

Thanks,
