Try the CSS Validator on this site (based on CSSTidy)
CSSTidy is an opensource CSS parser and optimiser. It is available as executeable file (available for Windows, Linux and OSX) which can be controlled per command line and as PHP script (both with almost the same functionality).
In opposite to most other CSS parsers, no regular expressions are used and thus CSSTidy has full CSS2 support and a higher reliability.

JIRA was not designed to be a support system, but can be easily tailored to do so. the reasoning behind it is simple – your clients are testers! Traditional post-launch support is distant from the project development lifecycle, and rarely any kind of integration takes place.

There are many ways to do this with JIRA, but this is the most pragmatic and maintainable appraoch I found.

Firstly, verify your browser can support this anyway by viewing this page. Once done, save the page HTML and upload to your own web server. Not an extensive test by any means, but a good indication of your web server’s support for different character sets.
To do this basic test, just compare the characters in the top cell for a character set, with the corresponding image below in next cell down. They should be identical, or at least a very good representation of the character displayed in the image. Sometimes the eye is still the best test tool!
