Greetings,

First, thanks very much for the service. 

Second, I'm a little confused by the report, which reads
(for an uploaded file):


-------------------------------------
No error or warning found

To work as intended, your CSS style sheet needs a correct 
document parse tree. This means you should use valid HTML.

Valid CSS informations
body {
margin : 5px; 
padding : 0; 
color : black; 
background : white; 
font-family : "new century schoolbook", serif; 
font-size : 14px; 
} 
h1 , h2 , h3 , h4 {
font-family : "comic sans MS", arial, helvetica, sans-serif; 
line-height : 120%; 
} 
h1 {
font-size : 20px; 
} 
-------------------------------------


Questions:

1. Is "No error or warning found" the best I can hope for?
   [The parallel html validator is a bit more enthusiastic ;) ]


2. There is rather more css info than shown (see below).
   Why does that material not appear?


3. My css (below) works fine with IE5, and seems valid
   based on your tests, but current Mozilla and Netscape 
   fail to recognize horizontal padding. Is that normal?


Thanks for your help!
