This is a test case - uploaded to http://validator.w3.org/ it passes OK, as
valid XHTML 1.0 Transitional, but Amaya 8.1a says

Each error line is a link.
It can be activated by a double (or a single) click
*** Errors/warnings in C:\steve\TestStub\test.html
  line 15, char 8: The XML element <applet> is not allowed here
  line 17, char 6: The XML element <param> is not allowed here
  line 17, char 46: Unexpected end tag </param>
