Breaking the CSS validator

I have a whole suite of pages that completely refuse to validate with the
CSS validator.

They validate fine against the XHTML spec (using
http://validator.w3.org/check/referer from the page itself) but the CSS
validator completely gives up with an unviewable error (in IE6).

In the source, I see:

<H2>Target: http://djr.wamoz.com/Honda/default.asp</H2>
<div class="error">
<p>Please, validate your XML document first!</p>
<p>Line 1
<p>Column 3
<p>The markup declarations contained or pointed to by the document type
declaration must be well-formed.

The DTD referenced is:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"

And I cannot see anything wrong with that line.

Can you help please? All the pages can be located at http://djr.wamoz.com/.
The ones with blue curves should validate - the home page, items under
"Honda Videos" and "Backgrounds" are also converted to this layout (rather
than the crappy previous layout).
