Hi

I read that comments are allowed within style sheets, using /* and */ - so i
want to ask you:
Why does the following code generate a parse error?

BODY {
	padding-top : 0px; /* Opera 5 needs this */
	padding-left : 0px;
	margin-bottom : 0px;
	margin-left : 0px;
	margin-right : 0px;
	margin-top : 0px;
	color : Black;
	background-color : Green;
	font-family : Verdana, Geneva, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
	font-size : 10pt;
}

when i remove the comment the style validates! Is it a parser problem, or am
i not allowed to put comments within a tags definition?
Thanks in advance for any answer
Yours
