The first warning is correct. It refers to the code ("</A>") inside 
your script. I suspect the second one (pointing to "</SCRIPT>") 
results from Tidy getting confused by the invalid "-->" on the 
previous line.

What in your document do you consider to be invalid in HTML3.2? I 
can't find anything (from, admittedly, a fairly cursory look: Tidy is 
usually right on this).
