I finally got around to validating the code on my site and was happy to
see that it was nearly perfect the first time around.  Once I cleaned up
any errors, I added links to the XHTML and CSS validators.  Imagine my
surprise when using /check/referer turned up invalid CSS after having
already validated my CSS.

A few further tests show that the offending code looks different
depending on which way I ask the validator to do its validation.  Using
the uri=href method, it validates just fine, but I notice that my
#center has border-left : 1px solid inherit;  When validating using
check/referer, the it reads border-left : 1px solid grey;  Looking at my
source, the latter is the correct and only version available.

Is there something in the way the two methods fetch and parse the CSS
that cause the output to be different?
