It was my understanding that the '_' character was to
be accepted in CSS names and identifiers by the CSS
Validator as being legal.


My stylesheets keep chucking parse errors with an
underscore character. 

I've tested this on many browsers (IE 5.5, 6.0;
Netscape 4.7x/8, 6/7, Mozilla 1.x, and all those new
Mac browsers - Safari, Chimera, Konquerer etc) and
it's never been a problem. 

I searched the archives, and it was mentioned in May
2002 with a note saying it should be fixed in a
week... any news?
