Heh. I didn't know either until now. Why? Because the validator results don't
say what settings were applied. I almost always submit CSS from within my
browser, which generates the URL to submit the current page to the W3C's CSS
'validator' and its default settings. If W3C's CSS validator's output would
say what settings were used, and allow resubmitting the same document with
different settings, that would be a useful improvement.
