I don't know what server might be complaining, but your tags are not 
properly nested., aand it looks as if a few are missing.   For example, 
at the start, <body> is nested within <html>, and at thhe end, </html> 
is nested within </body>.

Als0, shouldn't there be some kind of tag around Content-type: text/html

Sorry if I haven't found a problem with Gambit, but it seems to me there
are problems in what you're asking it to do.
