Hi, Anna..

I just ran your website through the Validator.. I received similar
error(s) but different lines. It's saying that you cannot have two ID
values that are the same. They have to each be unique, different. The
source as the Validator is seeing it has two instances where there are
indeed duplicate ID values.

To see what the Validator is seeing, try your website again by
clicking the "More Options" choice then putting a checkmark (click,
toggle) "Show Source". Once you do that, you can then click on the
line number in each error message returned.

For example, click the number "135" if you receive the same "Line 135,
Column 586" as I have twice just now. That will immediately jump you
down the page to line number 135 where you can review exactly what the
Validator is highlighting.

Hope that helps at least a little.. :)
