Well, the errors are there as I can see them.  The first error: missing 
a type attribute from the script element on line 14, as the validator 
told you, is easy to fix.  Use this:

<script type="text/javascript">
...
</script>

Don't use the language attribute, it's both deprecated and completley 
useless.

Many of the remaining errors are caused by your poor use of 
document.write() statements

The authoring tool is irrelevant as far as validation goes, however 
swithing to a tool that produces valid code would help a lot.  I 
recommend notepad or other plain text editor.

How?  I can see many errors in your document, and I'd be interested to 
see how you can prove such a false statement.

The authoring tool is irrelevant, the validator only looks at the 
resultant markup.  Since Open Office is clearly producing invalid 
markup, it's a problem with Open Office, not the validator.
