You need to delete the code that is not valid.
 
Use CSS to achieve the effect you desire. For example, the first 4 errors will be corrected if you remove the offending code (e.g.leftmargin="0") and within your external CSS document add the following code:
 
html {
padding-top : 0; 
padding-right : 0; 
padding-bottom : 0; 
padding-left : 0; 
border-top-width : 0; 
border-right-width : 0; 
border-bottom-width : 0; 
border-left-width : 0; 
margin : 0; 
}

hi there, I've just validated my html page and found the following errors, and I can't find an explanation on the error explanations page to work out what's wrong with this. Some of this code was generated by Dreamweaver 4 - is that anything to do with the error?

Could you tell what I need to do to make this page valid? (I was validating it as transitional html)

thanks
john
