There is a certain bug in Validator. When parsing LINK and META tags:
Validator returns error when one of above tag is closed with "/>", but
everything works fine were closing with ">"
eg:
in source code:
     '<meta http-equiv="content-style-type" content="text/css" />'
                                                                ^
returns error: "character data is not allowed here"

but:
     '<meta http-equiv="content-style-type" content="text/css" >'
is fine.

Same thing is when parsing:
     '<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="style.css" />'
                                                               ^
That's all. Thank for reading.
