The text above the text area is "Enter the CSS you would like
validated:". Did you paste CSS or HTML into the area? From the
error mesage above it seems you pasted HTML. That does not work.
If you want to validate style sheets included in HTML documents,
either extract them manually or use the validate-by-uri feature.
