Description John Russell 2004-10-17 17:19:04 UTC
div {border:2px dot} should indicate a problem
as the correct spec would be div {border:2px dotted}
poorly defined specs should be trapped even though a 
browser may be able to tolerate error by assumptions
Comment 1 Etan Wexler 2004-11-27 03:37:47 UTC
Initial testing shows that any value comprising an <identifier> after a <length>
will escape error detection. We need test cases.

The result that the validator yields and calls valid is itself invalid:

a { border: 1px none inherit }
