I'm starting to look seriously into parsing CSS1.  I've found and
downloaded my Java parsing tools:  Jlex, and CUP.

I'm a bit frightened by the forward parsing requirements.  Appendix B, as
wonderful as it is, doesn't take these rules into account.  Seems to be
more useful to validate CSS1.

Anyhow I'd figured I'd as here for any tips to help, or pitfalls to avoid
before I start too much work.

Heck, If there is a free Java CSS1 parser already written, I won't have to
do anything at all. :-)
