change the doctype to transitional

Some of the self-closing tags such as

the shorttag errors are

the shorttag errors are because you're using xhtml syntax in a html document (the ending slash). Either remove the slash, as its not needed in html 4, or change your doctype to xhtml.

the alt error is simple - all images neeed an alt attribute in case images are disabled or it won't load or for screen readers etc.

I can't view source (currently browsing on phone ) but at a guess Id say you also have css styles declared in the body section instead of the head section.
