At first glance it appears you have a </form> without a matching <form>.

Improper nesting of elements. When I remove all the properly nested
elements I'm left with:

<form method="post" action="/veiyo/contact.html">
<div class="container">

</form>
</div>

Which exactly matches the errors given by the validator.

Assuming you used the W3C validator, you didn't find the following specific
reasons it gave you sufficiently informative?

Below are the results of attempting to parse this document with an SGML
parser.

1. Line 67, column 6: end tag for "div" omitted, but OMITTAG NO was
specified

</form>

2. Line 14, column 0: start tag was here

<div class="container">

3. Line 69, column 5: end tag for element "div" which is not open

</div>

"Improper nesting of elements"

That was it. The <form> and </form> elements were "improperly nested".
The Wc3 error message does not make sense (to me) in this regards,
hence the post. Cheers.

Then why didn't you give us the message to interpret, instead of requiring
us to go validate your page ourselves to figure out what was going on?

Well, of course. You responded two days later, and he'd had a chance to
implement the fix that he was given.
