I don't know exactly what your problem is. But your code was not valid.

<link></link>
<img></img>
<br></br>
<hr></hr>

From above, they are non-close tags. You must use

<link />
<img />
<br />
<hr />

The input tag has no close tag too. Fix these and validate again. And why did you insert table into the heading tag.
The heading tag was text container, not element container.
You should use DIV.
Fix the above error and try again. If not you success, post here..
Good luck..

hello,
i went through your code in detail and observed that you haven't closed the h1 and h3 tags. that is the reason you get the error message.
also the doctype declaration doesnt need an xml processing instruction at the start so remove the first line from your html code that declares the xml version.

always check your code for tags that are not closed and follow the web standards according to the doctype declaration.

hope this helps.

Thanks... I got the error fixed..I was keeping the table in the h3 field.. i used a div instead

Good thing you have figured your problem out but i suggest for future refernce not to use tables Divs make the layout much more simpiler and easier to edit.
