Dear Karl,

The error is not in the elccss.css file that you validated, but in your 
html source, where you have a form element with an invalid inline css 
style, caused by a new line break between border and -top.  Easily fixed.

Aslo, do you know that although your page looks fine in Firefox, it 
looks rubbish in Internet Explorer, where you appear to have what are 
probably float/clear problems.  If you need any help, just give me a 
shout via paulmckeown@chimneyrock.co.uk.

Cheers,
Paul McKeown.
