I've been working on a new website recently, and continue to aspire to keep
it W3 compliant. However, while my CSS file is confirmed as valid when I
upload it from the PC, as soon as I host this for the site & follow the CSS
validation button, it declares an error. I've attached PDF prints of both
pages, but the CSS is the exact same, and simply copied from the PC as soon
as it is validated.


At the moment the CSS validation badge is on a page not indexed or listed
elsewhere (http://employmentlawclinic.com/ppma/searches/) although this is
only a temporary address while bugs are worked out , so it may move soon.
I'd like to keep the CSS badge, but would appreciate understanding why my
CSS is declared valid when submitted from one address (the PC) while not
from another (the hosting site).


Hope this is a bug with the Validation service, as I've worked hard to try
to keep to the standards, but would appreciate any feedback you can offer.


I look forward to hearing from you.


Kind regards,




Karl Limpert
