You closed the html element without including a body element (which is
required).

Also you are failing to conform to Appendix C section 2.
http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/#C_2

Also you haven't included an XML declaration despite using a character
encoding other then UTF-8 or UTF-16 (although it is possible[1] that
Appendix C forbids such declarations (and thus non-Unicode XHTML
documents as text/html)).


[1] It is hard to tell, the spec isn't well written here, which is one
reason I'm sticking with HTML 4.01.

(I read the mailing list. Please direct responses there and do not CC
me).
