XHTML validating

I have attempted to validate my webpage that I am currently developing
for a college assignment and the W3C validator refuses to validate it
- "text/plain is not supported".

The file has the extension .htm (i've tried changing this to .html),
and when the code is copied into the direct input part of the
validator it is validated as valid. In addition, the Page Valet and
WDG validators both tell me my page is valid when it is uploaded.

Can anybody please let me know what I could be doing wrong.

Many Thanks,


This is the first time i've used this, if there is any more
information that you require please just let me know.
