Disable HTML Warnings in Eclipse with Eclipise for Java EE developers edition

I am working on a Web App with Eclipse for Java EE. I have JSP files that are built with HTML files as includes. My index.jsp looks like this:

<jsp:include page="include/top.html" />
<jsp:include page="include/header.html" />
<jsp:include page="include/menu.html" />
<div class="span-15 prepend-1 last">
<h6>What is an <a href="">API</a>?</h6>
<p>An application programming interface (API) is an interface that software programs implement in order to allow other software to interact with it; much in the same way that software might implement a User interface in order to allow humans to interact with it.</p>
<jsp:include page="include/footer.html" />

The problem is with the includes. footer.html Looks like this:

<hr />
<h3 class="alt"><b><a href="/copyright.html">Copyright</a> &copy; 2009</b> My Company. All rights reserved.</h3>
<hr />
Visit <a href="/">Home</a>


Which gets put at the bottom of most pages. And I'm really annoyed with these warning messages like
Invalid location of tag (body).
