The claim is that the bug is invalid, not that he actually did anything
to fix it.

That style sheet contains the following style:

.btype {
	font-family: "Courier New", Courier, mono;
	font-size: 10pt;
	font-weight: bold;
	color: #000000;

"mono" is not a generic font family, therefore the tool is correct. You
are probably thinking of "monospace".

The only bug I see exhibited here is
http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=890 "Error always on line
0" - which isn't marked as resolved.
