For full disclosure,the report generated by jigsaw should indicate
the profile used.  i was unaware that the default was set to 2.0
and after the report indicated a property setting that was invalid
i reported it to someone who has written a tutorial on CSS usage
the link to it was found on w3.org style pages.....
it was an embarassment to be corrected even though the author
did so in a diplomatic way....
my error would not have been made if the jigsaw report had indicated
the profile that was used to validate..... 
it might even be useful to place the default profile on the input 
page so that one knows right away to switch profiles...

And finally maybe the time has come to make 2.1 the default...
most browsers are close to implementing this level..... --
