The CSS validator chokes on the Tantek Mid Pass Filter (MPF) in certain 
situations.  For some reason it parses the stylesheet incorrectly and get's 
fooled by the escaped quote.  The error reported is "Parse error - 
Unrecognized : @import 'stylesheet.css';".

The example I linked to shows two pages, almost identical, both valid XHTML 
strict, that both link to the same two stylesheets, one of which implements 
the MPF.  The only difference between the pages is the order in which they 
link to the stylesheets.  One passes CSS validation, the other doesn't.
