To make the validator work all you need to do is replace your previous dtd
and html opening tag with (note the dtd and xml definition are the first
thing on the page):

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC '-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN'
<html xmlns='http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml' lang='en' xml:lang='en'>

Well that and atchually put alt atributes on all images. It's not a lot and
you could put the shiny xhtml validators on your page.

Plus, I don't know if your interested but there's a couple of lines of css
that can make your menu the full width of the li, it's something along the
lines of:

#nav li a
    width: 99.8%;
    display: block;
