Hi,

I'm a newbie to most of this and I don't normally touch any Java  
"stuff" but I've got the HTML validator up an running and now I'm  
trying to get the CSS validator running. I've had a look through some  
of the messages but didn't find anything to help me.

I have followed the instructions at: http://jigsaw.w3.org/css- 
validator/DOWNLOAD.html

I have the following:
Mac OS X 10.4.10
Tomcat (4.1.24) up and running.
Ant  (1.6.5) java building tool .. it works ...
.... some java environment but I don't know how to check which one I  
have.

I had doubled checked that I have all the .jar needed and have placed  
them in:
  /usr/local/tomcat/weapps/css-validator/web-inf/lib

Once I get to step 5: Compile the validator's source: from the  
directory [VALIDATOR_DIR], Run ant, while making sure that the jar  
files you downloaded are correctly set in you CLASSPATH environment  
variable. Generally, the following will just work:
CLASSPATH=.:./WEB-INF/lib:$CLASSPATH ant

I hit a problem ... I type in: CLASSPATH=.:./WEB-INF/lib:$CLASSPATH  
ant when Im at /library/tomcat/webapps/css-validator where I have  
copied the css-validator.jar

An I get this:

Buildfile: build.xml does not exist!
Build failed

And this is where I'm stuck at the moment ... I have no idea how to  
go any further with the installation.

Can anyone help?

Thanks in advance,

Kylie
