Well if you have some of those strange files haunting some diskspace
somewhere I wouldn't mind throwing my parser on them to see if it breaks. I
have quite a few stylesheets, but as they are all tailored for existing
browser consumption, most of them are fairly simple.

Also, thanks to many good suggestions from Ian Hickson (Hi Ian !) I've
started working on a way to test stylesheets in a more or less automated
way, so anything weird to parse is welcome :)
