The pass condition is wrong, since there are no comma. WebKit drops the 
whole declaration for two reasons. First it does not allow escapes in 
'url' and secondly it does not allow whitespace between the url and 
opening parenthesis 'url ('.

I believe that it should fail because having a keyword 'url' with an 
optional whitespace before matching parenthesis does allow less value of 
such decelerations (possible additions to CSS).

Something like this fails 'rgb (0,127,0)' but this parses 'rg\42 (0,127,0)'.

Out of interest IE7 parses this and show an image.
