That's not strange, the CSS validator tries to find errors in
the CSS of an (X)HTML document, and it could be lost if this
document is invalid (X)HTML.  To check the latter there's a
separate (X)HTML validator.  The CSS validator looks only at
the minimum of (X)HTML it needs to find the CSS.  And the
(X)HTML validator ignores all CSS details as long as it finds
the end, e.g. the right double quote for a style="...".
