Adding CSS checking to HTML Tidy is a nice idea, but I have to admit
that I am too busy to do much work on this right now. Perhaps this
could be approached incrementally. It would be helpful to get a feel
for what you think are the most important style sheet errors to look
for?  Can you prioritize them?

p.s. I maintain Tidy but not HTML-Kit.
