    The document type declaration is not closed (missing '>' at the end of
    line 1). There should also be URL or browsers will be thrown into quirks
    mode.

    Hmmm. Tricky. I'd say you are missing a delimeter ">", a delimeter "[", a
    system identifier, some "CDATA", "NDATA", "SDATA" or a parameter separator.

    Yep, you are missing a ">".

    Not so tricky after all :)
