The important thing is if you want to validate your CSS style sheet embedded in an (X)HTML document, you should first check that the (X)HTML you use is valid.

As Eric said, a lot of big websites don't validate, however, if you start with a validating website that works perfectly in, for example, Firefox, Safari/Chrome, or Opera, chances are it will be right or mostly right in the other 3 and will only require minor adjustments for them to be right.

Then you can work on any hacks that might be needed for Trident based browsers like IE.

Just because your site works with this crop of web browsers, there is not guarantees you will be good with the next if you are not standards compliant.

Lets be honest web browsers will often be updated many times within the lifespan of a web site.

However recently I have been taking a college course and the prof wants us to validate every thing we turn in. If your pages are valid HTML and CSS, however, newer browsers should display them correctly in the future.

Yes standards are your defence in a changing world.I think validating your pages is a good thing, however there are a few myths around this.Firstly, you probably don't want to be doing XHTML, as you are in variably serving it incorrectly to browsers. Secondly, having valid pages is nice, and useful, but don't beat yourself up over it, and don't validate other people's pages -- some people really enjoy this, and it only ever comes across as mean.For the majority of general websites, the hacks needed to make things work in IE7 and IE6 will still be valid.Once you are at that point, it's easy to debug any problems and then start making any adjustments/hacks that don't validate.As a diligent developer I am sure you will retest as browsers get updated but there is a window between the update and you testing (remediating).
