'Border' declarations with extra term (1.10 KB, text/css; charset=UTF-8)
2004-10-05 01:49 UTC, Etan Wexler

Description Bj 2003-08-07 10:20:24 UTC
The validator does not report errors for

a {
   border: thin dashed 1pt white;

and produces an odd valid style sheet. See

And see
for details.

'Border' declarations with extra term

The extra term for each declaration is a <border-color>, <border-style>, or
<border-width>. Each declaration has 4 terms.
Comment 3 Etan Wexler 2004-10-05 06:48:40 UTC

parsing. Contrast:

(which accepts the invalid style sheet)


(which raises an error about the style sheet).
