Google's webmaster help pages state valid markup helps (as I remember)
but I don't see anything that would stop Google indexing your site.

You should definitely fix those errors, except for the "there is no
attribute errors", which you can most likely ignore.

I recently examined several pages of mine which were not performing as
well as expected in the SERPS and found syntax errors in the creation
of HTML tables.  I fixed the errors are several of the pages shot up
in the SERPS.

There is no 100% certain method of determining which errors will
causes problems for Googlebot.  Why take chances?  Why not fix all of
the ones that can be fixed?

I see two errors relating th <TR>'s in your output... quite
reminscent of my recent experience.

I suspect these unterminated tags get the robot confused between markup
and content. So while the page may get spidered the spider may find less
than optimal content. Presumably the seo algorithms work best on valid
and properly structured (e.g. H1, H2, H3 heading usage) content.

That's my take anyway.
