Indeed, that was my mistake.  I fell prey to the perils of having
concurrent drafts out for various levels of CSS.

The example was as follows.

h1 {
  font-weight: bold;
  font-size: 12pt;
  line-height: 14pt;
  font-family: Helvetica;
  font-variant: normal;
  font-style: normal;
}

That makes one rule by my count: one rule set with six declarations.  Can
you note where the multiple rules are?
