And this is why the validator will not give a markup to insert in your
XHTML document. It cannot guess that you will use it in HTML, XHTML or
other XML languages.

Yes, and the CSS validator doesn't check the XHTML document when you
give it one, it checks the CSS inside the document (internal or linked
from the document), and then, since it knows that you're trying to use
CSS with XHTML, it will give you back the proper XHTML markup to include
your page.
