So, if I understand you correctly:

* You have a page that doesn't do what you want.

* This page has machine detectable syntax errors in it.

* Other people are refusing to help until those syntax errors are
  fixed

That seems reasonable to me. Correcting such markup errors is
relatively cheap compared to trying to debug code without fixing them.

(Please keep responses on the mailing list, thank-you)
