The validator tells you

| If you would like to create a link to this page
| (i.e., this validation result) to make it easier
| to re-validate this page in the future or
| to allow others to validate your page, the URI is
| ......
| or
| http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/check/referer

So you are actually given this address (URL) with "referer".


It is in general not a good idea to link with this address
using the "Valid CSS" icon. The behaviour of the CSS validator
may change in future as it has in deed changed in the past.
Currently the default is CSS v. 2.1. There is no way to specify
the CSS level in a CSS file. Therefore the link
 http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/check/referer
might result in "Invalid" in the future.

This is entirely different from HTML where your files begin with
<!DOCTYPE html  ...
and thus specify the HTML version.
