That's valid but pointless, since what robots recognize is "noindex, 
nofollow".

According to the doctype you are declaring, the body element needs some 
block-level content.

Either use a Transitional DTD or include <div></div> in the body 
element. This of course won't address the problem that when client-side 
scripting is disabled in a browser, the page is completely empty.
