Down to one puzzling error.

Take a look:
http://oil4lessllc.com/StripperWells.htm

There is an issue tho; the HTML checker sez it fails, when the same
border statement used to be OK.
It flags only the first one, and none of the others which are identical.
The code used to work at one time, but i futzed around with it trying
to get positioning OK, get rid of blue borders, and add "US" to the list
(of the five pad numbers wher both icon changed color and a URL became
available).
I do not know how to fix this problem; would someone please be kind
enough to help?

You are now using HTML 4.01 Strict, not Transitional. Some attributes
are no longer valid.
The validator is not without its faults. Just keep correcting the errors
until there are no more.

In HTML 4.0 Strict, there is no border attribute; you have to use
CSS. Remove the "border=0" from inside of your img tag. Then, in
between the <style type="text/css"> </style> tags, you can put the
following:

<!--
img { border: 0; }
-->

This will cause all images to have no borders. Or you can put
style="border: 0" inside each img tag that needs no border.

I have gone as far as i can go; if the border attribute is not valid
in that line, then it is not valid in the next five lines.
Either border is valid in all of them, or in none of them - and it
once was.
If i remove the border statement from line 69, the validator then
complains about the exact same atribute in line 74 (the next time it
appears).
And i do *not* want a blue border!

originated. Goin' for a beer...

Correct - none of them are valid. Many people have told you that, and you
can easily verify it yourself by simply looking up the relevant docs at
w3.org.
Either border is valid in all of them, or in none of them - and it
once was.
No, you were once using a different DTD, with different rules. Again,
you've been told that before, it's even quoted above.
If i remove the border statement from line 69, the validator then
complains about the exact same atribute in line 74 (the next time
it appears).


It's correct to complain - "border" is not valid in the Strict DTD.

Remove the "border" attributes from the affected elements. Use a
style-sheet to suppress the border.

Define a class on img elements:
img.link {border-style: none}
Use that class for all such elements that are within anchor (link)
elements.

Besides doing that, I also define a class on anchor elements:
a.image {text-decoration: none}
and use it on all anchors that contain images. This eliminates the
underline.

Note that, where an img element is contained in an anchor, I use the
"title" attribute for the anchor to indicate (via a tooltip) that there
really is a link hidden there. (Usually, I also have some visible text
for that.) I reserve the "title" attribute of the img element to
indicate the origin or copyright of the image.
