The line (131) referred to contains

<a href=href="healthcare-industry-news.html" title="Healthcare Industry 
News" class="newshead">News at HCX</a><br />

which means that the part href= appears twice in succession. When using 
XHTML, the error is detected when the character following the first href= is 
not a (double or single) quotation mark, as all attribute values must appear 
in quotes.
