The numbers are supposed to be ISO 8859-1 characters codes.  I'd guess the
page has been written with some broken (a.k.a. W*nd*ws) software (the use
of *.htm makes this apparent).  There is no hope for being compliant to
any standard.  I tried to validate it through the W3.org validator, but no
document type matches.
