What exactly is CSS Validation. The way I understand it, is that it scans the code in your web site to make sure that it is coded correctly. Does this mean that if it "is valid" it will work properly with all browsers? Please help me understand the reasoning behind it. Should I worry if my sites have errors?

CSS Validation is a tricky one. Technically, you should worry if your CSS files have errors.

(Quick note: CSS Validation is VERY different from the "regular" Validation that you hear about which has to do with HTML; HTML Validation is far more important and can help fix problems)

CSS Errors. There shouldn’t be any unless you’ve intentionally put them in (eg, ie6 hacks). If you haven’t done anything like that and you’re getting errors, you need to sort those out, but at the end of the day they probably won’t break the page.
