Not a very helpful error message. I wonder why HTML Validator parses
document.write(), even when it is commented out.

Line 287, column 39: end tag for element "B" which is not open

document.write('<b>Add to Favorites</b></a>');

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 being 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.
