    Did you convert the PSD to HTML/CSS with some automatic tool, or did you do it yourself?

    The errors you showed are related to vendor-specific prefixes, which are not 100% valid CSS for every browser. Other things speak for itself (“attempt to find a semi-colon before the property name. add it“)

    Although browsers recognize experimental CSS rules and values using vendor prefixes, they’re not valid according to the specification and thus they won’t validate.

    @senff… thank you for your respond ,
    yes i converted to HTML/CSS by my self in Dreamweaver without using any automatic tool, I am new to css so i dont know what specific prefixes exactly mean, if you mean new css3 properties like (Gradient , box shadow…) then yes i used it in my style sheet . how i can make it valid% ?

    Thank You

    See @agrimsrud comment above. Using CSS3, you won’t be able to make it 100% valid.

    validators are severely out of date right now. dont worry about making sites 100% valid anymore, just make sure you test on as many browsers and devices as humanly possible.
