Works now - please enhance the CSS Validator tool with more and meaningful error messages!

I did the extra spaces and added the xml:lang="en", but this wasn't enough.
You need to be a detective to notice that on the first line, your "iso" is
small caps while mine was "ISO" and that the quotes need to be " and not '.
Also, my DOCTYPE URI was different from yours.

The writers of these tools IMHO really do a great disfavour to the community
by not providing any meaningful error messages. It certainly would be
possible to utter something like <"ISO-8859-1" unknown encoding> or <DOCTYPE
xyz not found at URI uvw...> that would hopefully have brought me on the
right track without having to waste bandwidth and bother you all...

Anyway, thanks to everybody who helped - it now works for me.
