You have an XHTML document. XHTML is XML.

The Markup Validator is an SGML validator, not an XML validator. It
does its best when given XML, but isn't perfect and has some bugs. You
have an unencoded & in your alt attribute on line 220.

You should also seriously read the XHTML 1.0 specification - if any
user agent ever treats your XHTML as XHTML (instead of tag soup) its
going to ignore all your JavaScript (since you have commented it out).

I really doubt you are getting any benefits from using XHTML, so I
very strongly suggest moving back to HTML 4.01.
