The validator doesn't care what a page looks like, just what the code  
looks like.

Your code fragment validates fine as HTML. If it was supposed to be XHTML  
then it does indeed have an error (<br> instead of <br />). But since you  
didn't include a link to the actual page, it's hard to be sure if it's a  
doctype issue.
