Yes, they are for HTML 4.01. After I replaced all instances of SVG with PNG,
it drops down to 1700.

The SVG-part generated P-elements inside of oneanother.

Some of the main issues it find are  BR-tags that are closed <BR /> which it
probably believes to be XHTML-code.

It doesn't like the "<tspan>" or the attributes associated with it such as
"font-weight", etc. .

I understand that this is a ton of work and there is really no need to keep
some ancient piece of software running. For the future i know that i have to
choose xhtml as the output format.

Generally one wants to work through such an error list one line at

Yes, that is also my experience.

Thanks again for everybody's help!
