Once you've done that, you can validate your CSS as well, using the W3C
One thing I noticed right off is that you cannot use numbers as names (or
the beginnings of names) for IDs.
Even though you're using tables for layout here, I would still advise you to
use CSS for as much styling as you can. For instance, take the BODY tag. You
<body BGCOLOR="#ffffff" LEFTMARGIN="0" TOPMARGIN="0" MARGINWIDTH="0"
In CSS you could instead have:
Once you've validated the XHTML and the CSS, see where you stand with your
