You web server or PHP script is misconfigured. The CSS Validator sends
an Accept header like

  Accept: text/css, text/html, text/xml, application/xhtml+xml,
    application/xml, image/svg+xml, */*;q=0

Your server responds with

  HTTP/1.1 406 Not Acceptable
  Date: Thu, 03 Jul 2003 00:31:09 GMT
  Server: Apache/1.3.27 (Darwin) PHP/4.3.0 mod_ssl/2.8.13 OpenSSL/0.9.6i
  Alternates: {"kristin.php" 1 {type application/x-httpd-php} {length
  Vary: negotiate
  TCN: list
  Content-Type: text/html; charset=iso-8859-1

to such requests. I am not sure what causes this behaivour, maybe you
should contact the webmaster of that site or your web hosting provider.
