I do not have fatal errors with the second one :)

You just have a lot of errors which say that you have to fix your HTML

for example, first error is link
you put
	<link href="misc/default.css" rel="stylesheet" 
type="text/css" title="default">

instead of
<link href="misc/default.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" 
title="default" />

etc.... You have to fix your HTML :)

For the first URI is more than normal
Fatal Error: No DOCTYPE specified! You don't have a valid doctype.
