Dear folks,

I just thought you might like to know...

WRT:

		Appendix A. A sample style sheet for HTML 4.0

at:

		http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-CSS2/sample.html


NB. Copying the CSS text of your example on this page (i.e,. 116
lines, beginning at

		ADDRESS,
				.
				.
				.		and ending with
		}				(see P.S., below, for complete copy-pasted text) )


and pasting it into your own validator at:

		http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/#validate-by-input


generates:

		Sorry! We found the following errors

			URI : file://localhost/TextArea
			86		Parse Error - @page { margin: 10% }
			92		Parse error - Unrecognized }
			94		 unrecognized media speech

		Warnings (4)

			URI : file://localhost/TextArea
			25	TH	This property applies to block-level elements.
			26	CAPTION	This property applies to block-level elements.
			46	PRE	This property applies to block-level elements.
			59	CENTER	This property applies to block-level elements.




Best wishes,
/David

P.S.  FYI, here's the complete text of the problematic CSS from that
page, same as generated the above response from the validator:
