I'm passing along 2 questions by a CSS implementor who wishes to remain 
anonymous:

> The spec defines IMPORTANT_SYM as
>
> !important
>
> Some of the examples use
>
> !important
>
> and others use
>
> ! important
>
> The CSS Validator seems to accept any amount of space between ! and 
> important.
>
> Do you know what the truth is?
>
> =======
>
> The CSS2 spec says rect is
>
> rect(top right left bottom)
>
> but in their example they use
>
> rect(top, right, left, bottom)
>
> Are the commas required or not?
>
> GoLive generates css without the commas, and so does StyleMaster. The 
> validator wants the commas.  The css "works" in IE 5 with or without 
> the commas.  Neither appears to work in Mozilla (for clip).
