That's not a valid CSS1 selector.

<http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-CSS1#forward-compatible-parsing>:

    in CSS1, selectors (element names, classes and IDs) can
    contain only the characters A-Z, 0-9, and Unicode characters
    161-255, plus dash (-); they cannot start with a dash or a
    digit; they can also contain escaped characters and any Unicode
    character as a numeric code (see next item).
