Alright, so I'm in the process of creating Version 2.0 of chrisdire.com and I am having some troubles getting my page(s) to validate. I am just in the process of getting the outline/layout code of my homepage done, but since the other pages will follow a very similar style I need to get my homepage done and out of the way. I trying to make my code very simplistic while still retaining a dynamic look to it. W3C keeps giving me these parsing errors along with a few others that I can't figure out. Here they are:

Validation Output: 6 Errors

1. Error Line 38, Column 6: end tag for "div" omitted, but OMITTAG NO was specified.

</body>

You may have neglected to close an element, or perhaps you meant to "self-close" an element, that is, ending it with "/>" instead of ">".

2. Info Line 21, Column 2: start tag was here.

<div id="mainlogo">

3. Error Line 38, Column 6: end tag for "div" omitted, but OMITTAG NO was specified.

</body>

You may have neglected to close an element, or perhaps you meant to "self-close" an element, that is, ending it with "/>" instead of ">".

4. Info Line 19, Column 3: start tag was here.

<div id="pagecontainer">

5. Error Line 38, Column 7: XML Parsing Error: Opening and ending tag mismatch: div line 21 and body.

</body>

6. Error Line 40, Column 7: XML Parsing Error: Opening and ending tag mismatch: div line 19 and html.

</html>

7. Error Line 40, Column 7: XML Parsing Error: Premature end of data in tag body line 18.

</html>

8. Error Line 40, Column 7: XML Parsing Error: Premature end of data in tag html line 3.

</html>

So my question is does anyone know how, or why this is doing this? I have tried switching DOCTYPE's so see if that was the parsing problem but it didn't do anything. I have tried adding </div> tags to get rid of the OMITTAG NO's out of there but when I look at the code everything has a starting and closing tag. Also, when I SAVE AS as "all files" it keeps saving it as a text document as opposed to an internet friendly one! What the heck?! I am really at a loss. Can some please help me? My index.htm code is below for reference purposes.
