I don't know if this is it or not but:

You have a DOCTYPE declared twice. And the second one is inside the HEAD tag!!!

And isn't the DOCTYPE supposed to be the first code at the TOP of the page?

While you're at it, fix the markup and CSS errors reported by the online tools:

Wow...

I guess I didn't have that many errors in the code. I started off with a sample page and made alterations but really never look at the code through a Validator before...

I have only been looking at the code when I see an error on the web.

Darin could you help me understand some of these error message. I understand a little code but I do most of it in Dreamweaver.

Thanks I would appreciate it...

Thanks again

Here you go...

CODE
Error: no document type declaration; will parse without validation
Please see
http://htmlhelp.com/faq/html/basics.html#doctype

Note that the missing doctype also throws browsers into quirks mode:
http://hsivonen.iki.fi/doctype/

CODE
Error: element script  not allowed here; check which elements this element may be contained within
I think this is related to the CSS error. Perhaps the validator thinks the style element is still open, and complains because you can't put a script element inside a style element.

CODE
Error: DOCTYPE declaration not allowed in instance
Ah, there's the doctype. It must be the first line of the document, with nothing before it.

CODE
Error: element html  not allowed here; check which elements this element may be contained within
There should be a similar error for the head element. You need to move the style and script elements that appear before the doctype into the head element that comes after the doctype.

CODE
Error: end tag for a  omitted; end tags are required in XML  for non-empty elements; empty elements require an end tag or the start tag must end with />
You're missing the </a> tag.

CODE
Error: end tag for element p which is not open; try removing the end tag or check for improper nesting of elements
You've got a closing </p> tag but there is no opening <p> tag.

CODE
Error: unknown entity copy
Error: unknown entity nbsp
I think this is related to the doctype problem.

CODE
Warning: character & is the first character of a delimiter but occurred as data
Error: end tag for nobr omitted; end tags are required in XML for non-empty elements; empty elements require an end tag or the start tag must end with />
Embedding scripts into XHTML is troublesome. It's a lot cleaner to move the scripts into external files.

CODE
Error: unknown entity clickLABEL
Error: unknown entity flashLABEL
Error: unknown entity skin
Error: unknown entity text
Error: unknown entity untilColor
Error: unknown entity textColor
Error: unknown entity datesColor
Error: unknown entity year
Error: unknown entity month
Error: unknown entity day
Error: unknown entity hour
Error: unknown entity minute
Error: unknown entity second
Error: unknown entity x
Error: unknown entity y
Warning: reference not terminated by refc delimiter
See http://htmlhelp.com/tools/validator/problems.html.en#amp

CODE
Error: end tag for br  omitted; end tags are required in XML  for non-empty elements; empty elements require an end tag or the start tag must end with />
If you're going to use XHTML, then you need to use <br /> rather than <br>, and <img ... /> rather than <img ...>.

CODE
Error: end tag for td  omitted; end tags are required in XML  for non-empty elements; empty elements require an end tag or the start tag must end with />
Error: end tag for element span  which is not open; try removing the end tag or check for improper nesting of elements
More missing closing tags.
