    The first violation state - "http://www.merlinswalk.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=2&Itemid=2&lang=en" contains invalid markup. Tag: 'div' was not opened correctly.

     You'll need to post the rendered code for the page for us to look at it, but most likely cause is an extra </div> tag.

    If you double click the violation and switch to the Content Tab it will show you where in the response the </div> was found that was never opened or that some invalid markup is causing it to appear that way.
