Hi,

I am working on a project where I need to be able to parse CSS3, and I 
am using bison (a yacc like parser).  This is made kind of easy because 
the spec defines it almost in the right format (you just have to expand 
the short hand).  What makes it hard it the fact it is scattered all 
over the place.  So for example most of it is define at 
http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-syntax/#grammar0
Then you have other little bits scatted around at places like
* http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-mediaqueries/#syntax
* http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css3-page/#syntax-page-selector
* http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-selectors/#grammar

It is possible to find a place where it is all listed on a single page?  
If there is, I can't find it.

Regards
Michael

PS for anyone that cares, there is an error on 
http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css3-page/#syntax-page-selector

page :
      PAGE_SYM S* IDENT? S* pseudo_page? S*
      '{' S* [ margin_box | ruleset ]? [ ';' S* [ margin_box | ruleset 
]? ]* '}' S*
      ;
Should really be changed to:

page :
      PAGE_SYM S* IDENT? S* pseudo_page? S*
      '{' S* [ margin_box | declaration ]? [ ';' S* [ margin_box | 
declaration ]? ]* '}' S*
      ;
