Hello -

I was looking at one of the tests: http://www.w3.org/Style/CSS/Test/ 
CSS2.1/current/t040103-ident-03-c.htm

On my Firefox (Mac OS X, nightly build of FF 3.0a7pre from  
7/20/2007), it shows up red. I added a note about this test to:

	https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=12385.
	CSS idents can't start with "-"

Some of the FF people suggest the CSS test is wrong. In looking at  
the spec (http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/syndata.html#value-def- 
identifier), it looks as though a hyphen is allowed at the start of  
an identifier, unless the hyphen is followed by a digit. If I am  
understanding, then perhaps t040103-ident-03-c.htm can be as below.

Or am I wrong?

thanx - ray
