 Further to my previous message, I have found that removing the closing tags
for the body and html elements does result in successful validation.

As the HTML5 specification has these as optional tags, the code shouldn't
fail if closing tags are present. 

So, either the validator needs to allow optional closing tags in HTML5 or
the error message should be changed so that users know what to do to get the
code to validate. 

Cheers,

Subject: In explicable error returned

Hi,

The validator has flagged an error in:
http://www.w3.org/WAI/EO/Drafts/rd/symposia_template/symposium_name/

The error description is:
Line 116, Column 46: Non-space character in page trailer. 
Content-Disposition: form-data; name="charset"

The source listing referenced is:
115.</html>
116.Content-Disposition: form-data; name="charset"
117.
118.(detect t automatically)

As there is nothing in my code after the closing </html> tag, (not even a
carriage return), I don't know what is causing this error or how to fix it. 

Can you explain it please? 

Thanks,

Bim
