I think you forgot to copy the web.xml file to WEB-INF. This is the  
configuration file that tells tomcat to execute the servlet code.

Compilation errors when building the validator are not a good sign.
But even if you use the .jar given in the download page, you still  
have to do the following steps:

* copy the web.xml file into webapps/css-validator/WEB-INF
* get the prerequisite libraries (.jar) and copy them to one location  
where tomcat will be looking for them (either webapps/css-validator/ 
WEB-INF/lib/ or common/lib)

hopefully that will work. Tell us how it goes.

Cheers,
