We're trying to validate a stylesheet that has one change from a previously
validated stylesheet, and it now shows errors for almost every line (?!?).

As a test I tried to validate a stylesheet containing only this:

	BODY {
	  color: rgb(0,0,0);
	  background-color: rgb(255,255,255);
	}

The validator reports 5 errors!

It looks like the parser is broken, as it's saying this:

	Line: 2 Context : BODY Invalid number : color 
		rgb is not a color value : rgb 
	Line: 2 Context : BODY 
		Parse Error - rgb(0,0,0); 
	Line: 3 
		Parse Error - : rgb(255 
	Line: 3 
		Parse Error - ,255 
	Line: 4 
		Parse Error - ,255); } 

You can see that the errors for Lines 3 & 4 make it seem that parser is
acting really off...

If there's a bug, you might want to fix this!  If it really is something
wrong with our CSS, let me know if you can.
