Use Google and search on "Phatfusion" … and you get the answer I think ...

In what tool/editor do you get the error messages?

What error? Error message? 
Not correct syntax?

Tidy do not validate css files … Upload the file to a server and use W3 
validator,  SEEdit "Server Check Documents" or the Site Window contextual menu. 
 The w3 css checker validate css 2.1 so you could get some errors for css3 but 
that is just to ignore.

Was it related to SEEdit? Do SEEdit insert css using wrong syntax (from the 
Quick CSS palette or any other insertion tools)?

You lost a lot of SEEdit features…..

How do the js error messages looks like?

And I think you find it using Google and search for "Phatfusion"

YES, if the file is "standard" html, css, js files … and SEEdit and DreamWeaver 
use the same text-encoding. SEEdit use utf-8 for the js and css files and the 
meta tag encodings for html documents. (I think you only use us-ascii (a-z) so 
there is no problems)
