    Only 3 Errors left...

    And one thing bugging me. I've validated my CSS and it came up good. Now I'm validating my page code. However, I keep getting 3 errors. But I've tried to fix them and can't seem to. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    http://validator.w3.org/ is giving me 3 errors that I can't figure out.

    Also, at the very bottom, I can't seem to get the copyright info at the bottom below the container. How can I get that outside and just below the container?

    The errors are coming from you not closing your elements correctly. Don't use the center tag either. Its deprecated. To center a div you use margin:auto; default alignment of text is left so need to redeclare it now that you won't have the center tag anymore. To center text use text-align:center; in CSS on that element

    Ah! Thanks. I actually had the div on auto margin in my code, I didn't realize it was on the page as well. Thanks so much!
