CSS Validator works by HTTP Address - Not by Local file

Dear Sir/Madam:

This e-mail is to let you know that your Internet Online CSS validator works when checking a file located by HTTP, but does not work well when accessing a local file on my hard drive. 

I tried this by checking the exact same file on my hard drive compared to the same file located at my web site. Your validator confirmed the CSS was correct when checking the HTTP location, but claimed errors in the local file <head> tag by saying -

"To work as intended, your CSS style sheet needs a correct document parse tree. This means you should use valid HTML." 

It seems that the online validator has a problem with accessing the local file properly. It may be because I use a router that has a fire wall. Although the validator confirmed other CSS errors with the local file, apart from the error listed above, and when the other CSS errors were corrected, they no longer showed up. I am not sure why this oddity occurs, but I thought I would let you know.
