Just to expand slightly on Mark's reply.  If you export the old data
to a CSV file, you can then manipulate it in Excel to change the
structure (if needed) to match the new database structure.  You can
then import the modified CSV file to the new database.  All of this
can be achieved using phpMyAdmin.

Also, as you mentioned that you are planning to learn some PHP, have
you considered that a good place to start might be to modify the
software to give you the valid HTML output you require?
