Thank you Scott, Keith and Laurent for your answers and your advices.

Before sending my question, I actually validated the html file against
different version of Html and Xhtml DTD. (I validated the file first in
Dreamweaver, then, following your instructions, in the w3c validator). 

I also opened the file in WordPad and NoteBook and several times saved it in
text format.

After dozens of tries, Amaya progressively accepted the file without
crashing. (At a moment the bug moved at another place and Amaya crashed when
I reached this new point.)

Now I can scan the whole document down and up, what was impossible.
The bug seems to have gone away...

Great thanks and best regards

You could 'try' pasting it into the w3.org[*1] validate page, and select
the "Clean up Markup with HTML-Tidy"[*2] option - then work with the
"tidied" output.

The validator usually makes that easy
