Hi,

	I'm not really sure if this is a bug, but if a page has linked 
stylesheets, that apply to different mediums (e.g. one is screen and 
another is print) the CSS validator combines them all into one 
stylesheet, and the gives warnings about (for example) redefinitions of 
certain elements. Take one of my pages as an example: 
http://www.rickbull.co.uk/tutorials/HTML/Useful%20Information/web_safe.php 
- I think that it should parse the print style sheet as a seperate one 
to the screen stylesheet. Maybe I'm wrong here, but I didn't think that 
any UA would use both - it's either the screen or the print stylesheet. 
Perhaps you could make it so that it divides the ouput (warnings and 
errors) into sections - one section for print style sheets, one for 
screen style sheets, etc.?

Thanks,
	Rick Bull
