There are several different error messages reported by running the
validator over the URL you provided. If you are referring to errors
such as:

  there is no attribute "ALIGN"

Then that means that there is no attribute "ALIGN" defined in the DTD
your Doctype claims you are following, but you used it anyway. i.e. it
should NOT be in your document.

How? The traditional way to do that is to point the validator at the
page and have it report no errors (although that isn't proof since
there are errors which the validator can't pick up - much as a
spelling checking can't pick up grammer errors).

The technique used to create the pages is irrelevent, the validator
compares the document to the DTD. That is all that is needed.
