Description David Dudman 2007-04-16 12:16:37 UTC
I recieve the following error if i run the validator against the url above or even if i run the valiadtor from the W3C website on an individual style sheet, ie:

The error is :-

Servlet has thrown exception:javax.servlet.ServletException: Timed out

I'm using Firefox

On IE 6.0.2800.1106CO  (SP1) actually gives me 'Page not found' even though the css page exists!
Comment 1 Yves Lafon 2008-03-13 14:32:40 UTC
The CSS contains HTML tags (beginning and end of the document),
The validator now recognize this and display the appropriate error:
1      Parse Error  <style type="text/css">
216    Parse Error  </style>

Maybe a more specific error message could be displayed (but would require more i18n)
