Hi!

I had "http://eeckbird.com/Service/DP_DHL.php?l=Eng&c=1" validated and 
got the following error message:

 1. Error/Line 55, Column 339/: end tag for "select" which is not finished

....cursor:pointer;" onclick="" name="Landauswahl" 
size="1"></select*>*<br/></p><div>

Most likely, you nested tags and closed them in the wrong order. For 
example <p><em>...</p> is not acceptable, as <em> must be closed before 
<p>. Acceptable nesting is: <p><em>...</em></p>

Another possibility is that you used an element which requires a child 
element that you did not include. Hence the parent element is "not 
finished", not complete. For instance, in HTML the <head> element must 
contain a <title> child element, lists require appropriate list items 
(<ul> and <ol> require <li>; <dl> requires <dt> and <dd>), and so on.

My problem is that this error does not exist! The PHP-code that produces 
these tags is very simple and very logical. Just a few lines! And 
nothing except <option></option> tags is nested! And as you can see when 
you have the XHTML code listed everything is in perfect order!
Hope to get some feedback! And thank you for all you are doing!!! :-)

Yours truly
Eeckbird
