Your message really has a lot of claims, not all of them clear, not all
of them consistent with each others...

It seems you decided to fix your HTML markup because it displays fine
with IE and not with other browsers. That part is clear.

You then say that "when you put the url of your page" [where? In the
markup validator's interface] it comes up with many errors, then you say
there is nothing to fix. I am not sure I understand... That makes
helping you rather difficult.

Not knowing exactly what the problem is, I can only give very generic
pieces of advice, which I hope will help you:

Your design is rather complicated (frames and tables), and coded using
proprietary, non-standard markup (e.g marquee, allowtransparency), etc.
The validator will help you find these.

One more note: get rid of the dashes in your HTML comments.

Good luck,
