The Markup Validator is designed to deal with SGML, it has some
limitations when it comes to XML (as mentioned and linked to on the
Valid XHTML pages). I think this issue is covered by "XML does not
allow a parameter separator that is adjacent to a delimiter to be
omitted."

You missed out a space between valign="top" and class="pageName"

Do you realise that this comments your stylesheet out entirely? You
can't use comments like that in XHTML documents as <style> elements
are not defined as containing CDATA - so comments are real comments.

I strongly suggest sticking to HTML 4.01. XHTML 1.0 as text/html only
introduces problems.
