Is &uarr; an html character that I am not aware of? I had also found
style references that the validator could not validate. I appreciate
that this is trying to validate validation. It shows that suggests that
the output is invalid and should the html validator not have found this
&uarr; anomaly?

To quote the results: "It looks like this is a web page, not a feed. I 
looked for a feed associated with this page, but couldn't find one. 
Please enter the address of your feed to validate."

It then attempts to validate the document as a feed, and 
(unsurprisingly) fails to do so.
