Description M.-A. DARCHE 2005-11-07 15:30:08 UTC
The check referer facility should understand the profile option.

It would be very appreciated if we could set up on web pages links like


1. won't validate pages with
some CSS2.1 specific properties (for example display:inline-block) but which are
valid according to the CSS 2.1 spec.

2. We can already do use links like

3. Using the above syntax (specifying an explicit URI) forces us to compute the
page url for each web page, which can consume some precious time in some cases.
Agreed that this puts the burden on the W3C machines, but those machines will
only to have to do the computation when asked, not for every page rendering.
Comment 2 M.-A. DARCHE 2005-11-07 15:57:11 UTC works just

somewhere on the CSS validator pages? Maybe it should before this bug report is
Comment 3 Bj 2005-11-07 16:09:51 UTC
We don't really have much documentation on the CSS Validator, I don't think 
it's documented on the homepage, no.
Comment 4 M.-A. DARCHE 2005-11-09 14:22:47 UTC
The functionality is here. This is not a bug.

Bug #2493 is about providing a documentation on all the possible ways to call
the CSS validator.
