What error?  In the future, you should provide:
* a description of the error message
* a URL for your document (preferred); or failing that,
   + the relevant portions from your Markup and
   + an indication of the DTD being used.
     - HTML or XHTML; Strict, Transitional, Frameset; version number.
     - eg. HTML 4.01 Strict

However, searching the archives reveals [1] that it may be a problem 
with your DOCTYPE.  Depending on the type of document you are using, fix 
with the appropriate doctype from the list of valid DTDs [2].
