Allowing hyphens at the start of IDENTs is a proposal for CSS3, designed
to allow extensions to be safely introduced.

The syntax is something like:

   -ua-ident

...where "ua" is a short string to represent the UA (e.g. "moz" or
"ie" or "lynx" or whatever) and "ident" is the extension in question's
identifier.
