Can you paste a bit of code? I cannot reproduce this, also what askbot version are you running?

This is very weird I could not reproduce it with the latest askbot version, please check this two templates: skins/default/base.html skins/common/debug_header.html for this unclosed tag.

Your "meta google-site-verification" tag is incorrect. You must have copy-pasted entire tag in to the live settings, but should have copied just the verification code (the string with the letters and numbers).
