What does it mean (if anything) when we check that url against the
W3C CSS validator?

media="screen,projection" could cause problems.
Does it need a space, or an 'and'?

Also that wiki Main_Page has four tests for four versions of IE,
and serves a different styleheet for each. Looks like walking on  
broken glass to me...
