NET-enabling start-tag error

I inherited a site.  Contact page needed to be fixed.  Looks like it isn't validating.  I fixed some of the errors but there are a lot of errors that say, "NET-enabling start-tag requires SHORTTAG YES (HTML 4.01 transitional).  Not sure what that means since I really don't know php.  Any suggestions?

Problems are in lines 205, 211, 217, 24, 228, 235, 241 and 251.

It's not a PHP issue.  Try correcting the doctype declaration to use HTML5.  Something like this should help the validation:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html dir="ltr" lang="en-US">

Open in new window

HTML5 is more forgiving than the older doctypes.
