You probably mean the German version, which actually reads:

    CSS ist valide!

Both "valid" and "valide" are wrong in German. The correct German
translation is "gültig". The translation was perhaps done by a pupil
who thought that English "valid" should be "valide" in German
because it looks so similar.
