Well, it can't guess which solution you want to use, so it tells you why  
it's confused. The solution depends on what you were actually trying to do.

Assuming you want it to be parsed as HTML 4 transitional, replace the  
doctype line with this:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"  

Note that case is important; don't change things that are in lowercase to  
uppercase or vice versa.
