No I am testing if it selects not if it is going through error handling. Error handling is a different case all together in a different chapter. This rule is in Chapter 5 which is specifically about selectors and selection. The case is testing for that selection if the attribute in the HTML was actually valid would the attribute selector that matches (even though it is invalid) still match? This is what needs to be tested in this case. Error handling is in Chapter 4 and should also test a similar case, but in that case it should be specifically testing for the rule to be thrown out.

I don't see the distinction.  A number at the beginning of an ident
is an error, and you're testing how it's handled... and in
particular, that it's treated as an error.
