Your document declares an XHTML document type, so _all_ empty element tags 
(i.e. for elements with EMPTY declared content) must be written as 
"self-closing", e.g. <meta ... /> instead of <meta ...>.

(Alternatively, switch to good old HTML 4.01 and remove the "/" characters 
from empty element tags.)
