Common validation problems since last similar report

Same methodology as last time:
  * Error counted at most once per unique public URL.
  * Selection of pages totally biased by Validator.nu users.
  * Only (X)HTML5 validation errors.
  * Accidentally forgot to log errors for the (X)HTML5+ARIA schemas  
which means most data was lost over this logging period. :-(

Since the "+ARIA" flavors are now the defaults, this data isn't nearly  
as useful as it could be. :-(

Anyway, the old conclusion stands: We could eliminate a lot of noise  
for authors migrating to HTML5 if we made certain presentational  
attributes on tables and images conforming (at least when set to zero)  
and made the language attribute on <script> conforming (at least when  
set to "javascript").
