This is a bug in the current W3C Markup Validator, the problem here is
you document type declaration,

  <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.1 Strict//EN"

The public identifier ("-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.1 Strict//EN") is not known
to the CSS Validator it thus attempts to retrieve the document type
declaration through http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml11-strict.dtd
the system identifier which does not exist. Change the document type
declaration to

  <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.1//EN"

and it should work. Note that there is no "XHTML 1.1 Strict".
