This message needs to be improved. Karl Dubost is working on improving the
error/pages from the CSS validator. It means that you should validate your
document with the HTML validator first (if it is an HTML document).

Hum, that's weird. The CSS validator should tell you to use the icon if your
CSS1 document doesn't contain an error. What is the address of your web page?
