I recently entered my xhtml 1.1 website into a W3c validation engine. I only recieved 3 errors, all protaining to the Metatags. Apparently:
<meta name="keywords" content="world order productions, wop, anthony lemmer, a.l. lemmer" />

Is incorrect.. I 'googled' it many times, but nothing helpful appeared.

I agree that the meta keywords code you are using should be correct.

You should also have other meta tags present, so it ends up looking something like this:
<meta name="keywords" content="world order productions, wop, anthony lemmer, a.l. lemmer" />
<meta name="description" content="Welcome to Anthony Lemmer's World Order Productions." />
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1" />
<meta name="Author" content="Anthony Lemmer" />
If you don't have these other meta tags present, than this could be your 3 errors protaining to the Metatags, and W3c could be searching for Description, Content-type, and Author tags to complete the validation of your site correctly.

After all that... If you feel that your "keywords" are still failing, try separating your keywords into single word entries like this:
<meta name="keywords" content="world, order, productions, wop, anthony, lemmer, a.l., lemmer" />

For more information about meta tags refer to W3Schools.
