Well, according to http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/BUGS.html
ISO-8859-1 is currently not supported by the CSS Validator.

White space between attribute specifications is required in XML. The W3C
HTML Validator incorporates a SGML parser with only limited XML support
(cf., http://jclark.com/sp/xml.htm) hence it cannot detect all errors in
a XHTML document, try http://valet.webthing.com/page/ instead.
