Hello,

The Validator chokes on id="" on <style> tags and reports them as invalid. 
However, in XHTML, which is what I wrote my page as, it's supposed to be valid.
 It's on the spec.  http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/#C_13

Internal style sheets are supposed to be pointed in the markup, but with the
validator pointing it out as an error, it's not a good thing for XHTML use.

Is there a way to attach a test case?  I'll do so if possible.
