Problem :

I was hoping that someone may know how to resolve the below HTML5 validation error. When I try to validate my page it gives me a below error :

“Error Line 90, Column 63: An body start tag seen but an element of the same type was already open.

<body class="home blog single-author two-column right-sidebar">”

I have interpreted above error to mean that I have two body tags in my code. But, I have searched everywhere in my code and can only find the one <body> (the one referenced by above error) and one </body>. Can anyone please tell me how to fix above error?

Solution :

I had below code:

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" />

When it was supposed to be like below:

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" />

I knew that was very wrong but it is hard to spot sometimes, as you are just so used to a header code being correct 99% of a time. I obviously cut n pasted some code and that ended up in a wrong place.

This is not very specific to your question but I know as your error relates to the <body> tag, but this is a kind of thing you are looking for. Maybe you have the <link> or <meta> tag in your body somewhere, that clearly means to be in the <head>. Without seeing the code, it is very hard to give you a perfect answer.
