The error originates in a preceeding line:

<meta name="description"  content="Revolutionary solvent-free seamless 
roofing system combining superior durability and chemical resistance, 
specially formulated to remain permanently elastic with exceptionally 
quick installation. />

The content-value is not terminated by a quote! This causes error 
messages further down the page source code.
