The first 4 errors reported are a result of an unquoted attribute value, 
that needs to be quoted because it contains a special character.

Attribute values that contain '/', or other special characters, need to 
be quoted.  Unless you're well aware of all the characters you can and 
cannot use in unquoted attribute values, it's best if you always use 
quotes.  You should find that quoting all attribute values in the 
document will fix many other errors too.

The rest should be fairly self explanatory.  Please make sure you read 
all the error descriptions and any referenced help documents, and try to 
fix the errors yourself.  If you still have trouble, please be specific 
about which errors you don't understand how to fix.
