Did you copy and paste the quoted font? If so, try deleting the quotes and re-entering them manually. Maybe the quotes that were pasted are not typical quotation marks (part of the ASCII standard).

no I didn't, and yeah I deleted and re-typed - it's doing it for "lucida grande" also, which is a font from my wordpress theme . . .
oh well guess I can't use the css validation badge!

Is this online? We could take a look if you like. Usually I paste text/code into a plain text editor first to make sure it's clean. But in this case, it's worth just closing the code editor and opening it again. sometimes that helps it. There doesn't seem to be an error there.
Validation badges kind of suck anyway. I wouldn't put them on a site. It's a bit like receiving a compliment and then writing it on a postIt note and wearing it on your forehead.
