Validating by Direct Input passes while URL fails

When I enter my website (www.socialoutcry.com) into the URL checker,  
it fails and shows a message stating that a line containing only the  
phrase </div> contains a 'non SGML character number 0'.

However, if I directly copy and paste the page source into the Direct  
Input checker, it passes the W3C test.

Any idea why this is and how I can make my page compliant?
