    Have you tried a second opinion, i.e. another validator?

    I checked the first few errors and W3c is right, you have a bunch of errors in your source code.

    Don't know why you can't see them, I can!

    1. Line 98, Column 5: end tag for "td" omitted, but OMITTAG NO was specified
      </tr> You may have neglected to close an element, or perhaps you meant to "self-close" an element, that is, ending it with "/>" instead of ">".


    2. Line 96, Column 1: start tag was here
      <td class="header_adsense_bottom">
    I open source code and scroll down to like 96 and 98 and it shows:

    96: <td class="header_adsense_bottom">
    98: </tr>

    How come you see those errors in the source code?

    Is there a closing </td> in line 97?

    Errors and validation are two different things. YOu don't need to validate. You should be error free, however. ERROR FREE is crucial. Validation is not, necessarily.
