There are several issues with the page, but none of them is particularly 
complicated. Read the Validator's error messages and, if needed check 
out the references cited in them.

The first error is essential. The <!DOCTYPE html> line should be placed 
at the very start of the document.

Messages about the font element are given because you are using HTML5 
validation and HTML5 CR declares the font element as "obsolete". The 
element still work and it is required to work, so this is a matter of 
coding style, really. To most people, the font element is *so* 1990s, 
and CSS is used instead.

Messages "Stray end tag a." are simple: the markup has two consecutive 
</a> tags. In practice, the second one just gets ignored, but for clean 
code, delete the second one.

Then there's <object width="425" height="350">, which can't make sense 
in HTML terms: it tells the browser to embed a document but does not 
says which. I suppose the element is being manipulated with JavaScript. 
Consider whether you can still provide a data attribute or a type 
attribute or both (as required by the HTML5 CR).

Remove the </param> and </embed> tags. They have no effect, and they are 
disallowed according to the HTML5 CR. Also remove those </p> tags that 
have no matching start tag. Note that a <div> element implicitly closes 
an open <p> element.

The table that starts on line 806 does not match the HTML table model. 
The table should be turned into a row of the table that precedes it.

On lines 871 - 879, there is a long URL divided into several lines. Make 
it one line. A URL may not contain a line break.
