Description islamiad 2006-04-03 18:53:34 UTC
in my meta tag and my link tag I have a slash at the end.  This is OK since my document type is XHTML.  It registers perfectly in Mozilla.  If i change the tag to <link></link>, it gives me an error saying that link does not need a closing tag.  If I remove the last slash, it valdiates, but mozilla gives error.

"-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 strict//EN" is incorrect, the "strict" must be "Strict". See for details.
