I have attempted to validate my HTML code 
http://tandcl.homemail.com.au/index.html which incudes a small piece of CSS 
in style.css.

I get 2 error messages
1. Line 14, column 21: value of attribute "NAME" must be a single token

  <meta name="Microsoft Border" content="t, default">

This statement is inserted by Microsoft FrontPage. Without it the Shared 
Borders of FP do not work

2. Line 22, column 42: there is no attribute "BACKGROUND"
width="760" id="AutoNumber1" background="images/PARCHMNT.GIF">

This line is part of the statement
<table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" style="border-collapse: collapse"
width="760" id="AutoNumber1" background="images/PARCHMNT.GIF">

The W3 HTML Tutorial in page http://www.w3schools.com/html/html_tables.asp
shows an example of adding a background image in these lines:
<h4>A background image:</h4>
<table border="1"

I have followed this exactly (or so I think), or at least FP has, as I 
didn't type in any of this. I just entered the width and image name in a 

Is my code being interpreted as another (unacceptable) version of HTML?

The code type is shown as utf-8 in the statement <meta 
http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">

The Doctype statement is: <!doctype html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 
Both encoding and doctype are set to "automatically detect"

How can I validate the code?
