I have made a 27 line home page that W3C refuses to validate, and i
do not know how to fix it.
Line 6 is *DIRECTLY* from W3C and yet they bitch about it.
Line 12 ("..supplier of low pressure..") also gets a complaint.
Sorry about the folding, which messes with number of lines seen here.

That's because you're using an HTML 4.0 Transitional doctype and that line
is XHTML

Those two lines have XHTML style tags. Change the end of those lines to be
> instead of />

Also use a proper, modern, and complete DOCTYPE. 4.0 was obsolete
sometime in the last century.

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN"
"http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd">

See: http://www.w3.org/QA/2002/04/valid-dtd-list.html

As pointed out in another answer, you are using the xhtml method of
closing things such as meta and image that have no closing tags in
html. The W3C validator is quite correct as calling this an error,
because your Doctype says you are using html, not xhtml. In xhtml,
everything has to be closed. When html has no closing tag, in xhtml
you close as "blah />". In xhtml served correctly as application/xhtml
+xml, failure to close everything often results in your getting a
parsing error rather than the page being displayed. In xml, not
closing everything is one of the most serious errors you can make in
code. So far as I have seen, current browsers usually will forgive
using the xhtml closing tag "blah /> even though it is a html error.

Will try; found that "html" gave mucho errors that went away when
used "HTML" in that line.

Am a bit confused; are you saying that "closing" HTML lines like
"blah >" is an error and not a proper "close"?
