I tried the W3C CSS Validation Service
with these CSS files of the following URI.


These three are each same expression,
but encoded for each different character codes,
which are ISO-2022-JP, Shift_JIS and EUC-JP.

(I wrote "charset" in the former E-mail by mistake.
But, in those context, I think 'character code(s)' is more appropriate.
There are more than three encode systems
for no more than one 'Japanese charset'!)

The ISO-2022-JP character code uses the 'escape sequence'
for switch 'charset' like from ASCII to 'JIS X 0208' in a textfile.

However, the W3C CSS Validation Service could not process CSS files
encoded for ISO-2022-JP which include 'JIS X 0208'('full width')
characters successfully.

Please solve this problem.

I also beg an addition of the HTTP response header like

Content-Type: text/html; charset=EUC-JP

to W3C CSS Validator Results Page Japanese Edition
for express character code explicitly.
