While i try to validate http://dell.reseaubec.com/cjtm/contenu/entre.php, using http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fdell.reseaubec.com%2Fcjtm%2Fcontenu%2Fentre.php&charset=%28detect+automatically%29&doctype=%28detect+automatically%29&ss=1#line-20 , it returns me :

Below are the results of attempting to parse this document with an SGML parser. 

Line 20, column 6: end tag for "HEAD" which is not finished


Most likely, You nested tags and closed them in the wrong order. For example <p><em>...</p> is not acceptable, as <em> must be closed before <p>. Acceptable nesting is: <p><em>...</em></p> 

Another possibility is that you used an element (e.g. 'ul') which requires a child element (e.g. 'li') that you did not include. Hence the parent element is "not finished", not complete.

Apparently, i cannot figure out what's wrong with my <head> </head> tag.

Is this an error from the validator or is it me who's numb this morning ?

Best regards, and thanks again for this validator .. great tool .
