You open a <script> element at line 34.

And then you dive in to markup. Your problems are probably being
caused by your first end tag (for anything) triggering the end of the
<script> (the rules for CDATA are a little odd), but all of the markup
between line 34 and that is ignored (as its "JavaScript").

I also suggest you have a read of
