Hi Robert,
Thanks for the reply. I think that is pretty versatile set of tests. If I
understand correctly you want me to pick up all the css files and ask my
compiler to compile, so that the rules not supported will be pointed out. Am
I correct?

Secondly as a side note, is there anyways we can automate these tests? At
this point it looks like human intervention is needed to go and validate
each page?

Thanks,
Gowtham
