A URI is generally preferred to copy-pasting all of a document.  
Anyway, passing your document to the validator yields one error, with  
(I think) a rather self-explanatory error message: the "alt"  
attribute is required for the "img" element.

For a rationale, see:

For a very good resource on the topic:
