Epub file creation: ERROR: Parsing failed: Opening and ending tag mismatch


New member
I don't know much html and I am trying to make an epub file of my ebook. I am trying to edit it using the calibre editor but whenever I check the book for bugs, I get this error: ERROR: Parsing failed: Opening and ending tag mismatch: body line 9 and p, line 28, column 5. Could someone please

The code for my page is

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8'?>
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
  <title>Reclaiming life after brain injury v 1.73</title>
  <link type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" href="page_styles.css"/>
