As the result page 
http://validator.w3.org/check?verbose=1&uri=http%3A//www.lyrunedale.com/boards/read.php%3F1%2C6156

states:

This message may appear in several cases:
* You tried to include the "<" character in your page: you should escape 
it as "&lt;"

meaning that "<" should be escaped as "&lt;", e.g.:

...onchange="bbfontstyle('&lt;font face...

The same way you escaped the quotation marks.

HTH,
Osmo
