Next time, just give a URI pointing to your style sheet.

In your original message (<mid:42D84FBA.50403@eddyluten.com>, 
<http://www.w3.org/mid/42D84FBA.50403@eddyluten.com>), Eddy, you wrote:

In your first point, you show that the validator had checked your style 
sheet and found the style sheet valid. Yet you ask why the validator 
found the style sheet invalid. Your premise is incorrect. Please explain 
precisely what on the results page gave the impression that the 
validator had found your style sheet invalid. Then the W3C QA staff and 
interested list members can clarify the wording and/or layout of results.

Your first question was about yourself: “I really think this code is 
valid?” Whether the question was a typing error or a conceptual error is 
unclear to me.

Your second question was “could you review the attachment please?” The 
flippant answer is “yes”. A better answer is that it is pointless to 
review the style sheet when the pleading party agrees with the validator.
