Hi,

  http://www.w3.org/TR/2009/PR-css3-selectors-20091215 introduces tokens
beyond what CSS 2.1 defines as the unchanging core tokens. This assigns
significance to comments that they are not supposed to have, and creates
some anomalies. For instance, there is a token for ":not(" defined so
that

  :/**/not(...)

would not be recognized as :not pseudo class, while e.g.

  :/**/first-child

would be recognized as :first-child pseudo class. Opera, Firefox, and
Webkit however treat the selectors above the same. The same problem ex-
ists for the new attribute selectors.

regards,
