i'm getting these two errors from the validator, and on top of that I
can't even see my links selection box...I'm kind of new to programming
and this is kind of irking me off right now...any help would be very
much appreciated




   1.

      Line 44, column 8: end tag for element "SELECT" which is not open

      </select>

      The Validator found an end tag for the above element, but that
element is not currently open. This is often caused by a leftover end
tag from an element that was removed during editing, or by an
implicitly closed element (if you have an error related to an element
being used where it is not allowed, this is almost certainly the
case). In the latter case this error will disappear as soon as you fix
the original problem.

      If this error occured in a script section of your document, you
should probably read this FAQ entry.
   2.
      Line 45, column 6: end tag for element "FORM" which is not open

      </form>

25: <p>Hello...and welcome to my site.  I'm learning new items in
programming so
26: the site may change as often as every other day.  I'm glad you stopped by.  
27: On my site I'll talk about things that interest me in the science and space 
28: worlds. Which means I'll probably be talking about robots, quantum physics, 
29: Saturn's moon Titan, and creationism vs. evolutionism and whether or not 
30: there is common ground between them.  So once again, thanks for stopping by.
31:  I hope you enjoy everything I have to offer.</p>
