Validator Gurus,

I get the following four errors when trying to validate: 
http://www.spectraldesign.net/ but I think the problem is in the 
validator routine.  I've tried to find a different way to have the 
select-option configured, but this is the only way that works, so far as 
I can tell.  If I'm mistaken, please accept my apologies!

      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 characters such as "%" and "/" are
      common, but cannot appear without surrounding quotes).
