I posted a video on my blog, with a little addition to make it transparent, and the result is no less than 6 errors in the validator. Can anyone explain to me how to solve them?
The code of my post is here:
`<div style="margin-bottom: 25px; margin-top: 25px; margin:auto; text-align: left; width: 325px"><object width="320" height="256"><param name="movie" /><param name="wmode" value="transparent" /><embed src="http://www.dailymotion.com/swf/8DpMb5PuopPOAtN8" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="320" height="256" wmode="transparent"></embed></object><br /><span style="margin-top:0px"><a>Bjork - Bachelorette</a></span></div>`
And the validator result is here:
http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%...;doctype=Inline
Thanks a lot

The error of W3C's validator indicates you used an <embed> element, which is not supported by the DOCTYPE you use, hence the explanation given:

This error may also result if the element itself is not supported in the document type you are using
