Special syntax in css sheets for compiled help

I found the following syntax for css used in chm files. CSE does not recognise it.

MSHelp\:ktable
{
disambiguator: span;
filterString: ;
postfix:  
prefix: | 
separator: &nbsp| 
}

It would be useful to have this in the css validation.

Thanks Mike,

I will investigate implementing a mechanism that lets users specify CSS properties to ignore. I may also program those in by default.

Thanks Albert.

That will give the best of both worlds. Check against standards, while allowing innovation. (I suspect microformats, if they take off, will increase the temptation to insert new forms of markup!)

I've added the ability to ignore specific unrecognized CSS properties in the upcoming new version 8.00.

UPDATE: To ignore specific unrecognized CSS properties, the new onUnknownCSSPropertyMessage() function can be changed/edited using the Configuration Editor in the professional edition. This function also allows the default message text, category, flags, ID, and type to be changed for unknown CSS property messages.

By default, CSE HTML Validator will display a message listing the CSS properties that were ignored (if any).

By default, CSE HTML Validator will already ignore "disambiguator", "filterString", "postfix", "prefix", and "separator".
