Your web Validator ( raise 4 errors on 2.0 web-site,  while the same page , saved as agenda.html, is validated without errors by validate_by_upload.

Your web validator does not recognize, div tag, in 2.0 pages.
thank you.

The errors *are* there when served by your server to the validator. 
It's a pity is apparently so broken and does some browser sniffing , hence serving different content to GUI browsers and to the validator, (or maybe your code is bad, or maybe your server is misconfigured) but that's not the validator's fault.
