Many thanks to those that encouraged me to validate by web opac opening
pages.  I have successfully validated it against HTML 4.1 Transitional.
Along the way I learned several new things at least new to me.  I found that
when using JavaScript to write parts of a page it is necessary to use \/ to
close an element, i.e.. 
<p>asdfghjkasdfghj<\/p>.  This allows the JavaScript to properly validate.
My next 2 steps will be to get rid of tables used for presentation only and
to move more of the styles into the stylesheet.
