Re: the file of the URL below validates properly as xhtml1.1, the CSS as well, but clicking on the "check for validity" of CSS validator result page fails

First two lines of your XHTML document are

  <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.1//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR//DTD/xhtml11.dtd">
  <?xml version='1.0' encoding='ISO-8859-1'?>

The XML declaration needs to occur at the very beginning of the
document, not after the document type declaration. The CSS Validator is
right, the document is not well-formed. The HTML Validator (old and beta
version) are not able to find this error.
