Please Habibatu, like Tony said, you need to make your challenge or problem clear so that the house can help you. As it is now, am not sure if there is anyone here who understands what you are trying to do.

1. What are you building your site with, is it Wordpress or Blogspot?

2. Please paste the code you are trying to use here

The problem is with the script. Blogspot templates are XML files and the rules for XML are different from those for HTML. In XML, every opening tag is expected to have a closing tag while this is not always required in every HTML tag. So according to HTML, the script is okay but for XML it is missing a few parts.

That's why the error says: The element type "meta" must be terminated by the matching end-tag "</meta>".

What is happening here is that the XML is expecting to see a closing tag for the meta tag. That is, for every <meta> tag there must be an accompanying </meta> tag at the end. I hope you have gone through the lesson on HTML code, if not then you may not really understand what I am trying to explain so for better understanding you can go through that lesson again.

Now to correct the issue, use the modified script given below, it should work without errors. The main difference between this one and the one you posted is that I have added the closing meta tags the way the XML wants it (see the bolded text)
