Ah me I write again with a question about the validator; I can send a file 
if needed;

thanks for letting me know that the <hr> element gets no closing tag;
I removed the closing tag for the <hr> element but
the validator still insists my p element should not have a closing tag; but 
I customarily close all p elements, etc. and see no reason not to and 
nothing against it in the html 4.01 specs:
* * *

1.  Line 1971, Column 41: end tag for element "P" which is not open.
<p align="left"><hr width="90%">&nbsp;</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.

* * *
As I said, the validator was very helpful in catching a few typos in the 
first part of my code;
but when I got to the note stating that this was a translation at the bottom 
of my document,
the validator grabbed this paragraph--right below the  policy footers (I 
have 2 paragraphs for these, both following the original format exactly 
except one is in French) which had validated perfectly, as had all of the 
document above this!

Thanks again,

Here is the code at the bottom of my document; no error till I get to the 
one mentioned above (the 'error' was found at the very bottom of the code 
quoted below):
