|W3c validator and Html code issue|
html 4.01shows end greater symb, but w3c validator wants that to be removed
| 5:16 am on Aug 2, 2010 (gmt 0)|
To be frank I have only basic html knowledge. When I check my client website for w3c validation errors. W3c validator shows errors for all the end / and > symbols , sample error message.
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8"/>
In this above code, the ending > is the error highlighted
<meta name="msvalidate.01" content="163A1EA3370860A399DD12AC0299D8C6" />
In this above code, the ending / is the error highlighted.
Like this it show nearly 50 errors.
If I remove those, would there be any problem or can I remove that and upload.
Please let me know what would be the issue and what should I do.
Thanks in advance

If I understand you correctly (not sure)...
/> is used by xhtml doctypes but not by html doctypes. You should either replace /> with > (recommended) or change the doctype to xhtml.
