Hi there,

I've been validating this address in both Transitional XHTML and Strict XHTML 1.0 and I think there's a false flag in the validation…

The address: http://www.sunproof.co.uk/store

The error reported is:

"Line 657, Column 13: end tag for element "form" which is not open
The Validator found an end tag for the above element, but that element is not currently open. This is often caused by a leftover end tag from an element that was removed during editing, or by an implicitly closed element (if you have an error related to an element being used where it is not allowed, this is almost certainly the case). In the latter case this error will disappear as soon as you fix the original problem."

There are only two <form> tags in the DOM and both are closed correctly with valid forms.

I cannot for the life of me see why there's a problem here - would you be kind enough to take a look and confirm the false positive?

with best regards,
02476 - 110309
