If you give us the url it will be easier to help.

I know I personally got many errors like that--since geocities was appending
to my page, with only end tags.

  Subject: Another common problem to include in the FAQ?

        Or maybe the answer is just so obvious I can't see it? Problem is
        messages like:

        Line 21, column 110:
        ... ://w3.jp.ibm.com/apto/vitality/common.js"></SCRIPT>
        Error: end tag for element "SCRIPT" which is not open

        Line 23, column 6:
        Error: end tag for element "HEAD" which is not open

        I can look in the file and see the elements which it says are not
open, and
        there is no comment or error associated with those opening tags. My
        guess is that some intervening error is causing the problem, except
for the
        problem that there are no intervening statements in some cases. For
        example, in the first example above, that's a SRC= reference without
        statements... Just one script tag, nothing, and then the closing
