In this validation result:


The message 2, which says:
Line 10, column 6: end tag for element "HEAD" which is not open


The Validator found an end tag for the above element, but that element 
is not currently open. This is often caused by a leftover end tag from 
an element that was removed during editing, or by an implicitly closed 
element (if you have an error related to an element beeing used where it 
is not allowed, this is almost certainly the case). In the latter case 
this error will disappear as soon as you fix the original problem.


seems not to be true - the HEAD element *is* open and no errror related 
to "use where not allowed" for *this* element is stated. Well, the 
document validated is very buggy, but still, this message 2 is either 
wrong, or some other message is missing (IMHO).
