Looks good :)

Of course, htdocs/Ports/history.html it is.

Yea, dates... huh.  I'll check this out so that at least all the dates
correspond to the same thing (probably when it could run, which is before
it was imported for some of the later ports), before I point to this
document from other places on the site.

Adding where the port originated would be good too.

We'll also add some intro text to avoid people thinking that anything
listed before a major release in the table was definitely a part of that
family of releases.

HTML has been made compliant, and tags were lowercased (I try to keep all
but the list tags that way).

Your assumption was right, so we don't have to. :)
