You have a different problem: whatever is generating the content is
broken.  Firstly it sets Content-Length: 8088, so the validator
correctly reads 8088 bytes of content.  But the actual contents
are 22 bytes longer.  That means the validator misses the closing
</small>.

You could fix that with "Header unset Content-length", although
the brokenness actually runs much deeper than that.
