    Holy Cow! I've never seen that many errors.

    I'm sorry pennella, I don't mean to sound rude...
    Check out the links about validating in my sig below. Also, the suggestion about checking your code while developing so you can fix things along the way instead of getting slammed like this.
    Validate often DURING development - Use it like a splelchecker | Debug during Development |Write it for FireFox, ignore IE
    Use the right DocType | Validate your markup | Validate your CSS | Why validating is good | Why tables are bad

    I'm sorry, I didn't mean to imply that alt tag errors were breaking your page. I was only commenting on the shear volume of errors, seriously, that is some kind of record.
    Along with all those errors though, there are 60+ omitted end tags that could be causing problems.

    Then there are basic errors like putting .box set at height:600px; in .mid which is height:408px;
    depricated tags like <center>
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; where margin should be used

    You should also have a look at the link in my sig about tables.

    The record for me, that I've seen on forums, is just over 3000 errors. I have seen a handful in the 2000 range and double that in the 1000 range.

    Despite the 'alt' tag errors, I don't see 1000 or so images, so I question where all those alts are coming from and why they are there. If it's because the images need to be sliced up to fit in the table, then there are a lot more problems than that.
