Error Loading Campaign Monitor Template.

I'm currently in the process of making a template using CM tags and when uploading the template to test the email.  I get a warning that says - does not have a <img editable="true"> , <multiline> or <singleline> tag and nothing is editable and suggests to use a CM template. 

I've attached my code and you can see clearly I've used the tags above.  I'm confused.  Am I doing something wrong or is this a CM bug?

Hi Step,

Looking at your code there it appears you are not properly closing your <head> tag, but instead have two opening <head> tags. Change your second <head> to </head> and see if it imports properly.
