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

surrounding quotes).

This is also caused by using xhtml non closing tags while using a html  
dtd. eg <br/>
