Please provide an example that actually demonstrates the problem. 
Instead of a copy of an HTML document, a URL is preferable. If you post 
a copy of the document, at least make sure it is a correct copy (the one 
you sent has a question mark at the end of every line; besides, with the 
question marks removed, it causes a few error messages to be issued, but 
nothing about language).

(I tested with validator.w3.org. Validator.nu says “500 Internal Server 
Error” for this document, which is bad, but a different problem.)
