...Yet another comment complaining that the css badge code is not valid 
XHTML. I'm getting tired of those, and systematically answering "you 
should be intelligent enough to close the tag if using XHTML" is not 
likely to make them go away.


As far as I know the relevant code is somewhere around
	http://dev.w3.org/cvsweb/2002/css-validator/org/w3c/css/css/
and as far as I can tell, the current code ties the "default" (as in 
non html or xhtml specific) message to either of the specific ones 
(that is, ties to [x]html.properties.lang).
	CssParser.java: *  
StyleSheetGenerator.setDocumentBase("html.properties");

So, no trivial fix.

Any idea?
