Please help.  I don't know what I am doing wrong here.  Every page I 
create won't validate due to this error.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    * Line 17, column 55:

  <TABLE BORDER=1 CELLPADDING=0 CELLSPACING=0 WIDTH="750">
                                                         ^

      Error: element "TABLE" not allowed here; possible cause is an
      inline element containing a block-level element

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


Below is the source input I used for this validation:

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