 I used the validator.w3.org site to validate the pages of the site I was building using css coding. I used "htmltidyup" program on the site.  Very shortly after using it, the css codes on my site gradually began to not work and the site's appearence became severely corrupted.  I have never experienced this before since my first site using html only was made in 2004.  There is some maleware, virus or whatever attached to the tidyup program .I  did not expereince the disintegration of my site when I used the validator only.  The trouble only started when I used the tidy up program.  

Truly vicious!!!  This is awful and extremely upsetting!
