Hello,

The message Invalid Selector "active" comes from the attribute 
alink="#ff9900" in the body tag. This attribute generates a css rule 
":active" but this rule is not yet supported and Amaya reports an error. 
It shouldn't. 
We'll try to fix that by the next snapshot.

Thanks,
Laurent Carcone
