validator error explanation

I've been using the validator on a specific
site, and checking each page individually, using XHTML 1.0 transitional.

One example is this page:

The error I receive is this:
Line 38, column 13: there is no attribute "unload" (explain...).

Line 44, column 37: there is no attribute "onmouseout" (explain...).
    <p> <a href="main.html" onmouseout="MM_swapImgRestore()"
Line 44, column 71: there is no attribute "onmouseover" (explain...).

I've made the "onload,onmouseout,onmouseover" all lower case, and it
still doesn't validate.  I also checked the FAQ pages and read on
validating with scripts, as this refers to a javascript defined in the
<head> of my document.

In looking at the definition and acceptable code & attributes for XHTML
1.0 Transitional, I found that onload, onmouseout and onmouseover do
exist.  So I can't figure out why the validator is bringing them in as

Please help. I've searched the website in depth to find an answer before
finally e-mailing the support address.
