Hi, I do not know if this goes to the list or no.  I'm new to the validator. 
I can provide the file  if needed but the encoding that is getting the error 
is simply what is produced here!  It's right below the policy footer which 
is unchanged from the original & validates!  There are no leftover tags 
above.  Thanks.

The validator was very helpful in catching a few typos in the first part of 
my code;
but when I got to the note on the translation at the bottom,
the validator grabbed a paragraph I had right below the validated policy 
footers (I have 2 paragraphs, both following the original format exactly 
except one is in French)

and said that my p and hr elements were not open & did not need closing--the 
code is simiply as it is below--
this seems bizarre (you always close the hr element or I do--it's required 
in xhtml; this is html though but it's an option certainly; also elements 
can be embedded in other elements, except where a block element is embedded 
in an inline element, & that's not the problem here; the hr is used to 
divide off the statement saying that this document is a translation that the 
normative version is that of the W3C, etc.):

1. Error Line 2130, Column 42: end tag for element "HR" which is not open.

      <p align="left"><hr width="90%">&nbsp;</hr></p>



      The Validator found an end tag for the above element, but that element 
is not currently open. This is often caused by a leftover end tag from an 
element that was removed during editing, or by an implicitly closed element 
(if you have an error related to an element being used where it is not 
allowed, this is almost certainly the case). In the latter case this error 
will disappear as soon as you fix the original problem.

      If this error occured in a script section of your document, you should 
probably read this FAQ entry.
   2. Error Line 2130, Column 46: end tag for element "P" which is not open.

      <p align="left"><hr width="90%">&nbsp;</hr></p>

      The Validator found an end tag for the above element, but that element 
is not currently open. This is often caused by a leftover end tag from an

Here is the code at the bottom of my document; no error till I get to the 
one above (the lines in question are at the very bottom of the code quoted 
below):
