Do you realize that you have a HUGE amount of warnings on your CSS?

http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/validator?profile=css2&warning=2&uri=http%3A//www.w3.org/

How do you expect to be taken seriously as the authority on HTML and CSS with so many warnings as you have in your CSS?

You should really fix that.

I'm now going to copy and paste the warnings:

You should fix those, because it is a joke to call yourself the authority on HTML and CSS if your own CSS fails a simple validation check.
