The CSS validator reports errors when there is an underscore in the name of
a #id


eg, validate www.buzzeddie.com/dev/portraits.php

XHTML is fine, CSS has errors.

As soon as a #id or .class is reached that has an underscore in it's name
the validator throws erros.

Is this desired behaviour?  It seems ridiculous that underscore would be an
invalid character.


Cheers,
Ryan
