This is the essential error message: the document type definition you have 
declared (or any other DTD in HTML specifications for that matter) does
not contain an element named "EMBED". The other messages are about the 
attributes of this element; since the element is not allowed, no 
attributes are allowed for it either.

In HTML specifications, the general embedding element is the "OBJECT" 
element. Replacing "EMBED" by it can be problematic, though, since the 
functionalities, attributes, and browser support vary.
