Another validation error

I am going through the validation again as I was busy with work. I have this error and I can not seem to figure out why and how to fix it.

<tr><td>9330 - 6.0.0.524</td><td><a href="http://www.updateyourblackberry.c…




The construct </foo<bar> is valid in HTML (it is an example of the rather obscure “Shorttags” feature) but its use is not recommended. In most cases, this is a typo that you will want to fix. If you really want to use shorttags, be aware that they are not well implemented by browsers.


Suggestions?

(note : the first "<" in the first <tr> is underlined.)

Best guess - somewhere, maybe just before this spot in the code, it looks like you are missing the final ">" on a closing tag.

As tedster wrote, you are missing a closing >, but this might also be a consequence of another problem, like not closing a " or ' quote. For example, some browsers would work around this:

<a style="color:white>click here</a>

but validator would complain that you miss >.

FINALLY! I finished going through the code, cleaned everything up and no errors! ah! finally!

It will be so much easier next time, as now you know what to look for.

I guess that 99% of all HTML coding errors are relatives and derivations of the same basic 20 or so mistakes repeated over and over again.

That's exactly what it was. I fixed 11 errors and that caused the other 9. I'm happy!
