It's "only" 106 errors when I checked it.

If you mean the script that generates your page, then yes.
If you mean the inline script, then yes, too (see below).

Your basic errors are:
· no 'type' attribute given for the 'script' elements ("text/javascript" works
best, although still not registered),
· the character sequence "</" inside a 'script', although you didn't want to
end it there (change to "<\/"),
· proprietary, presentational attributes (e.g. for 'body' and 'table', use
CSS),
· &s in 'href's, which start an entity reference that isn't defined (use ; or
&amp;),
· no 'alt' attribute for 'img's, although it is required for accessibility
reasons (for purely presentational images alt="" is perfectly okay).

That are all FAQ errors.
