Having been around for most of these events, I guess it depends on where
one starts counting. Some possible starting points:

   - the Oct 10, 1994 proposal [1]
   - the May, 1995 inauguration of the www-style@w3.org ML [2]
   - the Nov, 1995 Style workshop [3]
   - the Dec 17, 1996 publishing CSS1 as a REC [4]

Celebrating 10 years in 2006 uses [4], while 20 years in 2014 uses [1].
Both are not unreasonable. :)
