CSS Cleaner or Code Compare

Out of curiosity, is there an online service or download that will compare a website and the CSS file to see if there are entries within the CSS file that are not being used anywhere on a website?

I think I have a bunch of bad/old/unused CSS entries in a certain file.

There are several.

The DustMe FireFox extension: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/dust-me-selectors/

A JQuery script: http://joaquinnunez.cl/blog/2009/10/06/jquery-css-cleaner/

The BeeCSS markup generator: http://beecss.theextremewebdesigns.com/

That last one is sort of "detect by proxy."  You paste in your HTML and it returns a blank CSS sheet with the selectors used in the HTML.  Given that, you can figure out what isn't be used from your current stylesheet.

I use the  CSS Usage 0.3.3  Add-on in Firefox.  It will check your CSS and provide a 'cleaned' version if you ask for it.  https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/addon/css-usage/
