Do you have a URI handy? I think the behavior depends on each 
validator/checker.

Interesting. I'll add that on the TODO list.

This error is reported by the CSS validator: 
http://qa-dev.w3.org:8001/css-validator/validator?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.internetguideto.com%2Flondon&profile=css21&warning=2

It seems to be because the space before the word margin is not a regular 
one (perhaps it is a non-breaking space).

Thomas fixed it a moment ago.
