Validating Error [79]: "end tag for element X which is not open"

[ I do believe there may be a bug in the validator. It is not finding
my <head> tag to be opened and so spits out error 79. Please see my
code - keep in mind I am prevalidating a template so the things in
brackets are the tags. I thought that they may have been confusing the
validator so I tried it on a fully rendered page and it gave the same
error. It also gives an error that the <body> tag doesn't belong where
it is, but I think that may have something to do with the <head> tag
issue. Here is my code

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
<link rel="stylesheet" href="templates/[template]/layout.css" type="text/css">

thank you in advance, and please, tell me if its my problem and not
yours! I can't seem to figure out why, for the life of me, Im getting
that error.
