Need to validate all your

Need to validate all your pages.
Some have pretty simple fixes to validate (missing alt tags) others have head elements before the html opening tag.

New sites should be using a strict doctype, as you are not transitioning from anything.

That's all I see for now. I'm sure CTJ will offer up moar advice.

The alt attribute is used in

The alt attribute is used in HTML and XHTML documents to specify alternative text (alt text) that is to be rendered when the element to which it is applied cannot be rendered. In HTML 4.01, the attribute is required for the img and area tags. It is optional for the input tag and the deprecated applet tag.

Now there's a piece of code I remember from my Geocities days Laughing out loud

First thing I would do is move every inline attribute to your separate CSS file. That would probably clear up 99% of the validation errors Laughing out loud
