Why when i closing the empty tag <area> like in the sentence:

<area shape="rect" coords="434,131,499,151" href="http://web_address" 
alt="Principal" />

The HTML Validator send an error like this:

You have used character data somewhere it is not permitted to appear. 
Mistakes that can cause this error include putting text directly in the body 
of the document without wrapping it in a container element (such as a 
<p>aragraph</p>) or forgetting to quote an attribute value (where characters 
such as "%" and "/" are common, but cannot appear without surrounding 
quotes).

***

Is the tag <area> one exception to recomendations to closing empty tags???

HELP ME!
