Much less then a URL, since getting the data to the validator is quite
a lot of work when I have to reconstruct your document manually.

Don't use this. HTML 4.0 has bugs and was quickly replaced with
4.01. New documents should usually be written in Strict, not
Transitional.

The only errors reported are regarding the use of attributes that do
not exist. Just remove them. I would suggest alternatives, but as they
can only be of use to JavaScripts, and you aren't using any, its a bit
pointless.

At the top of the validator output page next to the Revalidate button,
or by following the link to the Extended Interface next to the URL
input form.
