The Markup Validator isn't perfect, but the problems with it are
documented and there aren't very many of them. Given that lots of
people use it without problems, the errors are more likely to be with
your understanding of HTML than with the Markup Validator. Since you
haven't provided a URL or sample of the markup that you think the
Markup Validator is making mistakes with it is difficult to say for
sure or correct any specific misconceptions you have.

I don't think there has ever been an align element in HTML (if there
was, it predates HTML 3.2). 

There is/was an align attribute. It was deprecated in HTML 4.0 (which
was released about a decade ago) and only features in Transitional and
Frameset DTDs published then and since.
