The Markup Validator has some limitations when it comes to XHTML (and
it warns you about them when declaring the document to be valid).

One such limitation is that it doesn't recognise a missing space
between attributes to be an error: class='top_nav_current'title=...

(BTW - if you're using XHTML you really should _not_ be having "<!--"
at the start of your <script> elements, and if you're serving it as
text/html then you are probably better off with HTML 4.01 anyway).
