The DOCTYPE declaration you put at the top of your doc (<!-- DOCTYPE
HTML PUBLIC -->) is an HTML Comment, not a real DOCTYPE declaration.
Change to <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01
Transitional//EN"> and it should check the rest of your document.

I tested the url: http://brlstatx.brlspeak.net/
I applied the advise of the validator, resubmitted, and receive the same
fatal err msg. Is this a bug ? Test it yourself, but please report
off-lis since I'm not on this list. GrtnX, Osvaldo La Rosa.
