Bug Report: CSS Validation (^=)

I received the following error:

  URI : http://www.cookiecrook.com/include/print.css
  * Line: 9 
  Combinator ^= between selectors is not allowed in this profile or version

There should not be an error. The rule in question is:

  a[href^="/"]:after {
    content: " (http://www.cookiecrook.com" attr(href) ")";

I got this selector from an example by Eric Meyer and have also run it
through select|or|acle where it correctly returns:

"Selects any content placed after an a element with a href attribute that
begins with /."

Just thought you would want to know about it since I didn't see it in the
known bugs list.
