The typical early frontpage errors were overlapping elements, 
inline elements not terminated before a block element, multiple
empty inline elements, incorrect doctypes.

FP 2000 may be better, but it doesn't generate a doctype at all.

These tools also encourage non-structural markup, by the way their
user interface makes such markup easier than proper markup.
