Yes, that is most likely.  Many  WYSIWYG HTML editors, especially 
FrontPage, are well known to produce invalid and often disastrous 
markup.  I recommend that you cease using FP and switch to an editor 
that has everything you need, but nothing you don't.  Notepad is quite 
effective and, although it does lack syntax hilighting, it will not 
generate any invalid code for you like FP.

Many other editors do have nice features like syntax hilighting, but I 
don't recommend you switch to one that will generate any code for you 
(beyond simple tag completion features) and especially not a WYSIWYG editor.
