 From http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-values/#lengths :
"After the '0' length, the unit identifier is optional."

Please be more explicit about the distinction between the literal  
string "0" and the number evaluating to zero ("0.0", "00", ".0", etc.).

I now suppose that the unit identifier is optional only with the  
literal string "0", but initially, I read less carefully and thought  
that the unit identifier was optional with anything evaluating to zero.
