I've tried and tried to get this test page to validate.
http://homepage.ntlworld.com/mike-sheppard/ > Initially I had 30 or more errors but have got it down to only 4. However, I cannot see any logic in the errors that remain. Any help gratefully received.

There could be 2 problems as far as I can see, you forgot the closing tags after deleting some starting tags.

But my opinion, you forgot to give space in closing tags of xhtml.

Change to < /div> instead of </div>.

Take care...

Why are you closing opening tags ?

<div id="someid"/>

I remember <div> tags have to be closed < /div> in this way Hugo, it is not in the category of single starting and ending tags.
