I don't think there is a super quick-fix for blog validation problems,  
but here are some tips.

It looks like you are using a modified version of WordPress's default  
"Kubrick" theme. The default theme (at least in WordPress 2.6) is  
valid XHTML, so errors are probably due to theme modifications,  
plugins or markup problems in individual posts.

The front page of a WordPress blog shows multiple posts, so multiple  
errors from plugins and posts will be jumbled together (thus 132  
errors). A good tip is to start by validating and correcting  
individual posts. For example, the following individual post only  
shows 8 errors, which are really due to two missing P tags. You should  
be able to fix the problem by editing the post's HTML:


The error on the following page, appear to be due to bugs in the "all  
in one seo pack" plugin. To get this fixed, you might need to contact  
the plugin maintainer. To work-around the bug, you could just avoid  
using special characters like "&" in SEO phrases.


Anyway, I hope that gives you an idea of how to approach validation  
problems in a blogging system like WordPress.

Cheers - Chuck
