Spurious errors

Message-Id: <48DB3A20.5BF9.00ED.0@getty.edu>
To: <www-validator-css@w3.org>

When trying to check the validity of the css file below at:

<http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/#validate_by_input>

I invariably get these spurious errors:


187  	 .leftboxbody  	 attempt to find a semi-colon before the property name. add it
0 	.leftboxbody 	Property proxy-connection doesn't exist : keep-alive
187 	.leftboxbody 	Property cache-control doesn't exist : max-age
189 	.leftboxbody 	Parse Error max-age=0 adding-right: 0px;
190 	padding-bottom 	Parse Error padding-bottom:5px;
191 	padding-left 	Parse Error padding-left: 0px;
192 	font-size 	Parse Error font-size: 12px;
193 	font-style 	Parse Error font-style: normal;
194 	font-weight 	Parse Error font-weight: bold;
195 	font-weight 	Parse error - Unrecognized }
479 	#headertoprightutility 	Value Error : padding-top -10.0 negative values are not allowed : -10px 

How can I avoid them? Is this a (series of) bug(s) in the validator?

Thanks!
