Missing the TYPE attribute. According to the WDG validator for

HTML 4.0 Transitional, the TYPE attribute is not only available but required. Insert: type=content type Specifies the language of the script. Its value must be a media type (ex. text/javascript). This attribute is required by the HTML 4.0 specification and is a recommended replacement for the "language" attribute. [also, at the end of the description for "language," add:] This attribute has been deprecated by the HTML 4.0 Spec in favor of the "type" attribute.

Changed the last paragraph that starts "If we had set the

colspan=4" to read: Setting the colspan to a number greater than the actual number of columns (such as "colspan=4" in the following example) may cause some browsers to add empty columns to the table, possibly throwing your elements out of alignment. For example, in Netscape 4.5 and earlier, additional collapsed columns appear as an extra-wide border on the right of the table. The HTML 4.0 Specification requests that empty cells not be added.
