Prior to doing so I had 1 error, now I have 3 How do I recktify these?

  1.. Error Line 30 column 52: there is no attribute "HEIGHT".
...eight="25"><table width="760" height="25" border="0" cellpadding="0"
cellspacYou 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.. Error Line 55 column 56: there is no attribute "BACKGROUND".
... colspan="11" rowspan="2" background="images/semltd_r5_c1.jpg"><img
name="sem?

  3.. Error Line 57 column 22: end tag for "TR" which is not finished.
              <tr></tr>Most likely, You nested tags and closed them in the
wrong order. For example <p><em>...</p> is not acceptable, as <em> must be
closed before <p>. Acceptable nesting is: <p><em>...</em></p>

  Another possibility is that you used an element which requires a child
element that you did not include. Hence the parent element is "not
finished", not complete. For instance, <head> generally requires a <title>,
lists (ul, ol, dl) require list items (li, or dt, dd), and so on.
