Hmmmm.  I don't see a problem.  Your CSS validates.  The validator does  
make a couple *suggestions*.  One is that you add a generic font to your  
font-family.  This is referring to the font-family listing "impact" - no  
generic as you did for the "Arial" font-family.  The second is referencing  
"opacity".  The CSS version being used is CSS version 2 and "opacity" is  
not a valid property for this version.  With regard to the <snip>  
<space>:<space> rubbish or any of the other nonsense that had

HTH,
