There's one href="#top" on your page, in line 547.

There's no name="top" (dito no name= or id=top or "top")
on your page, so that href="#top" is in fact broken.

Counting line numbers can be difficult, apparently your
tool uses <CRLF> (^M^J) most of the time, but <LF> (^J)
near anything remotely related to <script>.

If I try "show document source" with my browser line 547
is shown as line 1080, each CRLF counted as two lines...

The validator gets it always right, you can ask it to
show the source (sorry, long URL)

In other words go to <http://validator.w3.org/detailed.html>,
enter your URL, check "show source", maybe uncheck "verbose",
click "validate", wait for the result, and in the result
find line 547 (truncated by me):

| 547.<p>Jump to: <a target="_top" href="#top"><b>Top of
