Error Message Feedback: text/css not currently supported.

Opera offers to send files for you for validation. I tried this with a 
CSS file, and got the following error message.

	Result:	Failed validation, 	
	File:	test.css	
	Encoding:		
	Doctype:		

	Sorry, I am unable to validate this document because its content
	type is text/css, which is not currently supported by this
	service.

It seems to me that it would be easy using the media type to direct 
files to the correct validator. As it is this message is misleading 
because the W3C validating service does support CSS.

Best wishes,

Steven Pemberton
