Oh, you're absolutely right Philip, my bad, I shouldn't answer mails  
before coffee.

Hormazdyar, the problem then is not so much the comments, the problem  
you are having is that the upload interface of the CSS validator can  
only take css stylesheets (that is, only the stuff that goes between  
<style> and </style> in your file (and then beware of the comments).  
The upload interface can not take HTML with CSS.

If you want to send HTML with embedded CSS to the validator, the  
content has to be online, and then you can use the "by URL" interface  
of the validator.

Hope this helps.
