|  Ah, because variable names are property _names_, not property _values_?

Actually, they are both.

Following the [css-variables] draft:

    :root {
        var-link-color: red;
        var-link-decoration: underline;
    }
    :link {
        color: var(link-color);
        text-decoration: var(link-decoration);
    }

Follow the [css-custom] draft:

    :root {
        my-link-color: red;
        my-link-decoration: underline;
    }
    :link {
        color: use(my-link-color);
        text-decoration: use(my-link-decoration);
    }

|  Per HTML5 spec, and in Gecko, this returns null.

You're the only browser to do so. Tested in Opera, it returns "true" too. 
Time to change the spec?



Anyway, I don't expect ppl to use non-ASCII idents. We could even make that 
compulsory to make sure.
