    function MM_preloadImages() { //v3.0
      var d=document; if(d.images){ if(!d.MM_p) d.MM_p=new Array();
        var i,j=d.MM_p.length,a=MM_preloadImages.arguments; for(i=0; i<a.length; i++)
        if (a[i].indexOf("#")!=0){ d.MM_p[j]=new Image; d.MM_p[j++].src=a[i];}}
    }

    have you run it through a validator?
    Technology is dominated by two types of people:
    those who understand what they do not manage,
    and those who manage what they do not understand.

    Having reached interview stage, this is the time for you the candidate to do yourself justice, and to prove to the interviewer the good judgement of your recruitment consultant in arranging the meeting. </p>
    <p align="justify" class="style2">The following suggestions will give you the confidence that you have prepared fully for your job interview/s, and are presenting yourself in a positive manner at every opportunity. </p>
    <p align="justify"> <strong>Preparation</strong> <a name="prep"></a></p>
    <div align="justify">
    <ul>
    <li class="style2">Check out your route to your destination and the anticipated travelling time beforehand </li>
    <li class="style2">Memorise the name and correct pronunciation of the person interviewing you to avoid embarrassment </li>
    <li class="style2">Read up on the company (size, divisions, latest projects etc) before the meeting to demonstrate your genuine interest in working for them </li>
    <li class="style2">Dress appropriately – if unsure ask your consultant for guidance. </li>
    </ul>
    </div> <p align="justify"> <strong>Prepare Questions to Ask the Interviewer</strong> <a name="prepQuest"></a></p>
    <p align="justify" class="style2">The best questions often become apparent during the meeting. However it is always good practice to have a few basic questions that show you are interested in your potential new employer eg. </p>
    <div align="justify">
    <ul>
    <li class="style2">How do you divide your maketing and sales up in operational terms? </li>
    <li class="style2">How optimistic is the company about winning a significant slice of the latest council contracts? </li>
    <li class="style2">Once your current contracts finish, what other projects have you pending to move people onto? </li>
    <li class="style2">What prospects for career progression are likely to be open to Project Managers with experience in other areas once the current job finishes? </li>
    </ul>
    </div> <p align="justify"> <strong>Answering Challenging Questions </strong><a name="ans_quest"></a><br>
    <br>
    Difficult questions can sometimes be asked more to test how you respond to an awkward situation rather than the interviewer looking for you to supply a ‘correct' answer. </p>
    <div align="justify">
    <ul>
    <li class="style2">Avoid detailed negative comments about any previous employers as this can reflect badly on you </li>
    <li class="style2"> Consider your answer before starting a response to a difficult question </li>
    <li class="style2"> If needed, seek clarification of the gist of a question before answering </li>
    </ul>
    </div> <p align="justify"> <strong>Manner During the Interview</strong> <a name="manner"></a></p>
    <div align="justify">
    <ul>
    <li class="style2">Smile on first contact </li>
    <li class="style2">Give a confident handshake </li>
    <li class="style2">Speak to all the people in the interview room rather than just the person asking the question </li>
    </ul>
    </div> <p align="justify"> <strong>Enthusiasm and Professionalism</strong> <a name="enthusiasm"></a></p>
    <div align="justify">
    <ul>
    <li class="style2">A crucial way to win over the interviewer is to let your general enthusiasm and professionalism become apparent. </li>
    <li class="style2">If you have got the interview on the basis of your literacy, academic knowledge or the personal traits you have described in your profile, you need to showcase them now </li>
    <li class="style2">Many candidates, but in particular first time job seekers take the risk of putting too much emphasis on questions relating to salary and package; it is worth demonstrating what you can offer the company before discussing what you would like them to be paying you. </li>
    <li class="style2">It is important to avoid coming across at interview as being a job hopper. This is particularly the case if the company is considering investing heavily in your training or providing course sponsorship. </li>

    <div align="justify">
    <ul><li class="style2">Politely ask about how the selection process will move forward from here. If it seems appropriate ask how many other people they are considering for the role/s available. This may prompt them to ask you if you are keen to be considered further, which is never a bad thing if you are interested. </li>
    </ul>
    </div>
    <ul><li><div align="left" class="style2">

    also consider changing it to

    HTML Code:

    You have the same problem as in the first question. The third SCRIPT element contains an unclosed comment (which is closed by a subsequent comment in a STYLE element).

    Don't use script code within the page. Use external scripts and style sheets.

    Code:

    Add that to close your comment, btw, I suggest looking through other pages for the same place for the same problem if it occurs, seems like they are based on the same template
