cryptic html validator

html on wheels
P: 35
I ran my html through a validator and here is one of the errors. Unfortunately I have no idea what it means. Does anyone have any ideas? In bold is what I had typed.

Error Line 1 column 60: invalid formal public identifier "-//W3C/DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN": no SPACE after public text class.
...-//W3C/DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dt..


<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C/DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">

Read the sticky but be aware that case matters. You have some parts in upper case.
