Validation Not Working...

I have rebuilt this over and over again with different values using the toolkit and cannot get anything to validate... Can anyone offer a suggestion as to what is going on?

I am using Validation Toolkit v2.3.5 on Dreamweaver CS4 (OSX). This is simple code for a standalone page and is not yet integrated with Universal Email 3.0.6 but that is the plan once I get this working.
