This error message is related to the next one.

There are errors before this one, and in general, it pays of to fix 
errors in order, because one error can cause other errors later, even a 
cascade of error messages, possibly rather confusing. In this case, 
though, it seems the other errors, though relevant, are not related to 
the issue at hand.

But where is that <div> element expected to end, i.e. where is its end 
tag? There are 27 <div> start tags and only 26 </div> end tags.

Because the <div> element has not been closed, another error messages is 
issued when the </body> end tag is seen (which is somewhat redundant, 
but I don't think there's any easy fix to this).
