Circular Warnings

Post by Lou » Tue Feb 21, 2017 4:51 pm

Yes, same old css file
Styles) Because the "text-decoration-color" property was used, it is recommended that the following missing properties be added (with the same value) for improved compatibility: "-moz-text-decoration-color" and "-webkit-text-decoration-color". This message is displayed up to 3 times
Well that warning should be easy to get ride of! So I added "-moz-text-decoration-color" and "-webkit-text-decoration-color" to the style for this class/id.
That resulted the following warnings
(Styles) [611] Found the proprietary Mozilla/Firefox property "-moz-text-decoration-color". Proprietary Mozilla/Firefox properties may only work in Mozilla/Firefox based browsers (depending on the version) and will probably not work in other browsers like Chrome, Internet Explorer, Opera, and Safari. There may be other properetary Mozilla/FireFox properties. ...
(Styles) [611] Found the proprietary Chrome/Safari/WebKit property "-webkit-text-decoration-color". Proprietary WebKit properties may only work in Chrome, Safari and other WebKit-based browsers (depending on the version) and will probably not work in other browsers like Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Opera. There may be other proprietary WebKit properties. ...
This loop seems to also be true for "text-decoration-style" "-moz-decoration-style" and "-webkit-decoration-style"

Again I don't know where to go here.

Hi Lou,

The messages about the proprietary properties only working in certain browsers are just informational messages and are not errors nor warning messages. Since you already know the information in the message you may just want to disable it and never see it again, or disable the entire group of related messages by disabling flag 611 (the number in the square brackets at the beginning of the message).

The easiest way to disable those messages is to right-click on each message (when displayed in CSE HTML Validator) and choose the desired option (method of disabling) from the 'Message Options' submenu.

Here is more information about disabling validator messages:

Thanks. The 611 flag does seem to be a good answer.
