[thelist] Problem validating CSS

I'm stumped. When I try to validate a CSS file
(http://www.thegeneration.org/style/midnight.css) using the W3C CSS
Validator, I receive nothing but the following error message:

"I/O Error: Unknown mime type : text/plain"

How do I fix this? I've tried uploading my CSS files (using Transmit on Mac)
in both normal and ASCII modes, but I get the same error both times.

When I tried validating it on WDG's CSSCheck
(http://www.htmlhelp.com/tools/csscheck/), I get congratulated for no errors
but also get the message:

"Note: Content-type of text/css expected, but server returned a Content-type
of text/plain."

Anybody help?
