Validator: #autoXML196424196424 - what? :-)

Hi all,

I have some questions about weird stuff in the CSS Validator.

run this validator check: 

Towards the bottom I get a warning about a Tag named 
"#autoXML196424196424" for http://www.kiss-chance.de (the page, not the 
style sheet, which is /css/style_creme.css and analyzed above) in line 111.

Line 111 does not have any style information. The warning is about 
font-families (can't copy/paste here, because I get the german validator 
output). There is not a single font family style in that HTML code.

In line 112 the validator complains about the same foreground and 
background color for the contexts "body" and "#autoXML196424196425" 
(Note: This is a different name than the one mentioned above!).

What does this mean?

Other errors I get and not fully understand are about "expression", a 
workaround I use to accomplish some positioning in IE6.

About expression("62px") the validator says that this would not be a 
height value. Does the validator have a problem with string expressions, 
or is this really outside the specifications (even though it works).

expression(document.body.offsetHeight - 14) and similar expressions 
prompt a parse error from the validator.

The question is, does the validator have a problem with this, are the 
errors misleading, or is this IE only stuff that really shouldn't work.
