The sequence can be interpreted in at least two different ways, depending on the DOCTYPE of the document. For HTML 4.01 Strict, the ‘/’ terminates the tag <FOO (with an implied ‘>’). However, since many browsers don’t interpret it this way, even in the presence of an HTML 4.01 Strict DOCTYPE, it is best to avoid it completely in pure HTML documents and reserve its use solely for those written in XHTML.

You have used character data somewhere it is not permitted to appear. Mistakes that can cause this error include:

putting text directly in the body of the document without wrapping it in a container element (such as a

aragraph

), or
forgetting to quote an attribute value (where characters such as “%” and “/” are common, but cannot appear without surrounding quotes), or
using XHTML-style self-closing tags (such as <meta … />) in HTML 4.01 or earlier. To fix, remove the extra slash (’/’) character. For more information about the reasons for this, see Empty elements in SGML, HTML, XML, and XHTML.

This is the Google validation tag. They present it on their site as
XHTML, but you pasted it into HTML. So just remove the self-closing
tag (the forward slash at the end of the tag, before the closing angle-
bracket. Or, delete the entire meta tag if Google have already marked
you down as a good domain. It’s only needed for a moment, as far as I
know, when they consider adding your site to the Google Analytics.
Once you’re in, you can delete it.
