What the heck does this mean:



# Error Line 86, Column 62: end tag for "input" omitted, but OMITTAG NO was specified.

…input name="email" id="email" type="text" tabindex="3">



You may have neglected to close an element, or perhaps you meant to "self-close" an element, that is, ending it with "/>" instead of ">".
# Info Line 86, Column 6: start tag was here.

<input name="email" id="email" type="text" tabindex="3">

Try:



<input name="email" id="email" type="text" tabindex="3" />

dont think so beacuse it says this:

I have 30+ errors but they are all this same damn thing and I have no idea what it means.

It means that you have no close element on those tags. You need to add a close element, such as what I posted.

For example, <br> has no close element. All HTML tags need to close, so you use <br />... it's self-closing. Same with the INPUT tag.

uhm I did not notice this before till I do something with xHTML. Since then I am always trying to enclose all the tags with /> , a good habit :p
