More likely, you are confusing "HTML 4.0" with "What errors commonly
used browsers tend to recover from".

JavaScript and CSS embedded in a webpage using script and style elements
or intrinsic event and style attributes must follow the rules for those
elements and attributes.

If you think you have found errors with the client side code at
http://validator.w3.org/ - then please file specific bug reports rather
then simply claiming "many errors". I doesn't seem likely that they have
a significant number of problems.

No, I wouldn't describe that as perfect.

No. It is perfectly possible to remain accessible while using modern
technologies - they just have to be used correctly.
