What does it mean, no change? The grammar excludes backslash
followed by newline from the escape token
   escape          {unicode}|\\[^\r\n\f0-9a-f]
but the prose says that it's ok.
   http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/syndata.html#characters
   "Any character (except a hexadecimal digit) can be escaped with a backslash"
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
I don't think this issue is resolved until the spec is self-consistent.
