HTML validation and line span error

I ran CSE HTML Validator lite. I received a lot of the following message:

"This line contains part of a quoted string that spans more than one line (not recommended) or a quoted string (like an attribute value) that is missing the start or end quotation mark. Check this line for improperly quoted attribute values that may be missing a start or end quotation mark. As currently configured, HTML Validator requires that all quoted strings be contained on one line and have start and end quotation marks. Note that because of inconsistent handling by user agents, it is not recommended that attribute values contain line breaks."

There aren't any quotations missing. This error applies to my meta keyword, description, etc. I use pico (and sometimes vi). It automatically starts a new line when there are spaces and the line is too long to fit on the screen.

Is this error message something I should be concerned about? If so, any tips for fixing this validator error?
