I do not have fatal errors with the second one :)
http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http://www.brlspeak.net/brlstatx.php

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.

<!-- DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC -->
<html>
<head>
<title> The BrlStatX Project Home Page </title>
<meta http-equiv="refresh" 
content="0;url=http://www.brlspeak.net/brlstatx.php">
</head>
<body bgcolor="#000000" text="FFFFFF" link="#00FF00" vlink="008FFF">

<font size="+1">

<center>URL:

</body>
