Default W3C CSS validator questions

Our home page here validates as valid XHTML Strict and its style sheet also validates. However, I get several warnings that I am not sure I understand:

  • Line : 5 (Level : 1)
    You have no color with your background-color : body

  • Line : 5 (Level : 2)
    Redefinition of background-color : body

  • Line : 41 (Level : 2)
    You have some absolute and relative lengths in padding. This is not a robust style sheet.

  • Line : 56 (Level : 2)
    You have some absolute and relative lengths in padding. This is not a robust style sheet.
What should I do about the first two? Is it that I am not supposed to set background-color in body in the first place? What color would I set there? Inherit? From where? Redefine?

As for the other two, I have never heard it was not robust to use different sorts of values (i.e., em and %) before. How does that weaken the stylesheet?
