<!DOCTYPE> Makes Everything Askew, why?

I have this scenrio posted in two different forums and nobody has 
responded, why?

Sometime ago I made the mistake of purchasing a Flash Template from 
TemplateMonster.Com: and, what I paid for was a virutal mess of 
scripting. I have been months trying to fix everything. I recently 
completed chaning everything to small letters, adding
Quote:
"#"

where there were none in the
Quote:
bgcolor="#"

script, placing
Quote:
"alt="""

tags where there were none, and placing "" where there were none. (See 
the example here:
Quote:
<TABLE WIDTH=100% height="100%" BORDER=0 CELLPADDING=0 CELLSPACING=0 
bgcolor="FFFFFF">.

Now my home page --http://www.willametteweb.us-- is all askew. It nakes 
it even worse if I add the following <!DOCTYPE> to the page:

Quote:
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" 
"http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">

I have to omit the latter script: "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">?!?

My question to all of you is, "How do I fix these problems?" In 
addition, the W3C HTML Validator doesn't recognize the following scripts 
either:
Quote:
<td colspan="5" background="images/bgtop1.gif" height="29" width="606">

Thank you, for your support.
