I wonder what you mean by css visualization and blocking it in .htaccess, 
or by viewing validation status. Please explain in simple words and by 
using applicable terms. (It almost looks like you would want to prevent 
your CSS code from taking any effect on rendering, yet show off that it 
"validates".)

You don't specify what you have done - the contents of the .htaccess file 
and the way you use, or expects users to use, for checking your CSS code 
with the "W3C CSS Validator".

The whole issue looks rather pointless, though. Users aren't interested in 
your "validation status".
