Much better than most :)

Shame about the JS new-window links, script-powered go button and
slightly dodgy alt text - "Great News" doesn't need to be duplicated.

I'd also question the summary you have on the table ("This table is
used for visual layout purposes") - does it actually add anything? It
could well slow down screen reader access to the page.

And of course there is the usual thing of using more structured HTML,
like using <h2> instead of <u><strong>.

And these pages are *so* near to validating it's painful :)
