page, then i get an error.
I have not checked if title head header is needed, but if I add a title before 
the css stylesheet it's valid, if i don't I get an error...

the error :

Error Line 36 column 7: end tag for "HEAD" which is not finished.

ol, dl) require list items (li, or dt, dd), and so on. 

you may check the webpage has not a head tag not finished as said by the
