I've been using the http://validator.w3.org/ validator on a specific
site, and checking each page individually, using XHTML 1.0 transitional.

One example is this page:
http://people.musc.edu/~adamskr/chcr/links.html

The error I receive is this:
Line 38, column 13: there is no attribute "unload" (explain...).
  <body
onload="MM_preloadImages('images/home3m2.gif','images/fellowship3m2.gif','

               ^
Line 44, column 37: there is no attribute "onmouseout" (explain...).
    <p> <a href="main.html" onmouseout="MM_swapImgRestore()"
onmouseover="MM_swapI
                                       ^
Line 44, column 71: there is no attribute "onmouseover" (explain...).
  ...ut="MM_swapImgRestore()"
onmouseover="MM_swapImage('home','','images/home3m2.

I've made the "onload,onmouseout,onmouseover" all lower case, and it
still doesn't validate.  I also checked the FAQ pages and read on
validating with scripts, as this refers to a javascript defined in the
<head> of my document.

In looking at the definition and acceptable code & attributes for XHTML
1.0 Transitional, I found that onload, onmouseout and onmouseover do
exist.  So I can't figure out why the validator is bringing them in as
errors.

Please help. I've searched the website in depth to find an answer before
finally e-mailing the support address.

Thanks,

Kristi Adams
