HTML Loads To Sigil w/ Errors

This is a frustrating error: I am preparing an HTML document for conversion to ePub. It is being opened by my browser successfully, but when I attempt to open it in Sigil, I get a message that tells me there is an error, gives me a line and column number, but doesn't show me what the error was. I'm getting a rendering of the page with nothing in it. I'm looking at the source and I don't see the error. The error is this:

error on line 8 at column29: Premature end of document.

Line 8 in my source has nothing but </HEAD> in it; column29 does not exist because a new line starts right after the close of the tag.

I am relatively new to HTML and so I'm trying to compare my source with what I know is already working. Can't seem to get rid of this error. Can anyone offer a suggestion on what else I can do to fix this?

Thanks!

Look for something wrong/missing, BEFORE the </head>, That is just what triggered the point of No more... doom message

BTW col 29 is the Newline char
