Yeah, that's intentionally not allowed, because Content-Style-Type is not
defined as a valid http-equiv value in the current HTML spec, and because it
actually has no effect in any relevant UAs (the default styling language in all
Web UAs/browsers is already CSS, and that's never going to change, so there's
no point in using Content-Style-Type to specify the default styling language).

You can eliminate the error by removing the <meta
http-equiv="Content-Style-Type" content="text/css"> instance from the document.
