Hi ~fantasai,

What about the css\chapter_4\Rules\ident-001.htm to 005.htm files
available in the public MS tests?
As well as: css\chapter_5\Rules\attribute-value-selector-004.htm

These tests have attributes that starts with a hyphen or a digit.
I assume that that's not well formed as well. 

Best Regards,
Robert Stam
