1. Line 48, column 18: there is no attribute "language"
<script language="javascript">
You have used the attribute named above in your document, but the document
type you are using does not support that attribute for this element. This
error is often caused by incorrect use of the "Strict" document type with a
document that uses frames (e.g. you must use the "Transitional" document
type to get the "target" attribute), or by using vendor proprietary
extensions such as "marginheight" (this is usually fixed by using CSS to
achieve the desired effect instead). 
This error may also result if the element itself is not supported in the
document type you are using, as an undefined element will have no supported
attributes; in this case, see the element-undefined error message for
further information. 
How to fix: check the spelling and case of the element and attribute,
(Remember XHTML is all lower-case) and/or check that they are both allowed
in the chosen document type, and/or use CSS instead of this attribute. 


2. Line 48, column 30: required attribute "type" not specified
<script language="javascript">
The attribute given above is required for an element that you've used, but
you have omitted it. For instance, in most HTML and XHTML document types the
"type" attribute is required on the "script" element and the "alt" attribute
is required for the "img" element. 
Typical values for type are type="text/css" for <style> and
type="text/javascript" for <script>. 


how can I fix this.
This is my code (XHTML)
<script language="javascript">
		function highlightButton(s)
			 {
		if ("input"==event.srcElement.tagName)
		event.srcElement.className=s
			}
	</script>
