W3C validation can't even get past line 1 which is your DOCTYPE.
The DOCTYPE is not writtem correctly.
When selecting to view the cource using W3C it shows there is none.
<!doctype html public "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
If you want to do it the way it is really supposed to be then use this
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/1999/REC-html401-19991224/loose.dtd">
Try adding the correct DOCTYPE and then we will see where to go from there.
This HTML tag is a new one on me.
What is the purpose of this rather than just using <html>?
<html dir="ltr" lang="en">
This line is not written as HTML.
<META name="verify-v1" content="VSliQfXoKlRcH+wImt5FfmqKq1WhVlQpv9Ci3mWX8 70=" />
The forward slash doesn't belong.
I'm not quite sure what this line is for either.
