Yes, it uses trunk, however 0.8 used to be trunk at one time, I don't recall
this error, but then never tested the Forrest main site regularly enough to
discount it either.

One thing to try which you might not like, but want to rule it out - can you
remove or comment out your rev_id meta tag, just to make sure the W3C
checker can read past this point to get at the CSS file locations.

The CSS files themselves validate (with warnings, but otherwise fine) so I
don't see a problem with the CSS itself.

We can take another look once we confirm what the above action does.
