Zachary welcome at WSG!

My suggestions:

To your page MarkUp:
1. HTML 4.01 and XHTML require the legend element in fieldsets. Use this
element immediately after the fieldset start tag.

To your page accessibility:
1. The input element (when type=image) requires the alt attribute to
specify a text equivalent. The text equivalent should be a short phrase that
succinctly identifies the image and makes its function clear. However, use
alt= when appropriate, such as when images are intended to format a page
(such as spacer images). [Section 1194.22 (a)]

2. The input element (when type=image) requires the alt attribute to
specify a text equivalent. The text equivalent should be a short phrase that
succinctly identifies the image and makes its function clear. However, use
alt= when appropriate, such as when images are intended to format a page
(such as spacer images). [P1, 1.1]

 Hello!

 I've just recently joined the WSG to get some tips, and I just wanted to
 say hello and introduce myself.
 My name is Zachary Hopkins, I'm 17 years old and I've been working with
 XHTML, CSS, and accessible web standards such as WAI and 508 for about 6
 months now, and I really like them!  You can check my website out at
 http://www.hopkinsprogramming.net/.  I'm doing my best to make sure that
 it is an accessible and standards based website.  I welcome any comments
 or suggestions, as I love to learn about new things and new ways to do
them.

 I have been trying to test how my site looks on Mac and *nix based
 systems, so if any of you have a free moment, perhaps you could open up
 my site in Camino, Konqueror or Safari and let me know how it looks?

 Thank you!
