Well, the Validator validates against CSS Level x, not against
proprietary extensions. If you use them, your style sheet cannot be
valid CSS Level x. Remove the IE extensions or live with the fact, that
your style sheet isn't valid. It's no fatal error to use them, since
conforming applications simply ignore them, but they are invalid
however.
