Hi, 
 
When I validate my new article layout here
 
http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.tekstenuitleg.net%2Fn
ewsite%2Ftemp.php
<http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.tekstenuitleg.net%2F
newsite%2Ftemp.php&charset=%28detect+automatically%29&doctype=Inline&ss=
1&sp=1&outline=1&noatt=1&No200=1&verbose=1>
&charset=%28detect+automatically%29&doctype=Inline&ss=1&sp=1&outline=1&n
oatt=1&No200=1&verbose=1
 
It tells me the document is valid HTML 4.01 Transitional. But if you
look at the code you will see the closing </head> tag is missing. 
I went through the DTD but I can't quite figure out anything specific
about this. Any clues? 
 
Here is the relevant pieve of code: 
 
   1: 
   2: <!DOCTYPE HTML SYSTEM
"http://www.tekstenuitleg.net/newsite/dtd/HTML4-modified.dtd">
   3: <html>
   4: <head>
   5: <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css">
   6: <title>Build a Home Network - How to</title>
   7: <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html;
charset=iso-8859-1">
   8: <META NAME="Description" content="Build a network. Explanation on
how to build your own home network using UTP cable and network cards ">
   9: <META HTTP-EQUIV="content-language" content="EN">
  10: <META NAME="Title" content="Build a home network - Extensive
explanation">
  11: <META NAME="Rating" content="General">
  12: <META NAME="Robots" content="index,follow">
  13: <META NAME="Abstract" content="Explanation of building a home

  14: <META NAME="Author" content="Ruben B van Loen">
  15: <META NAME="Keywords" content="build home network, howto, build,

crossed UTP, straight UTP, Test network, troubleshooting, ping, build
network ">
  16: <META NAME="Copyright" content="Ruben B van Loen">
  17: <META NAME="Designer" content="Ruben B van Loen">
  18: 
  19: 
  20: <body leftmargin="0" topmargin="0" marginwidth="0"
marginheight="0">
  21: <table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="800">
 
(The only thing I modified in my DTD is that I added Top Margin and
margin-width and height for the body)
 
 
Regards,
