Looks like a real bug in "CSS validator". It seems that the
selector .not triggers the bug, in any context.

I guess the "CSS validator" is confused with .not because it thinks it's a
keyword of some sort. Compare this with that it says about the style sheet
.and {}:

Parse error - Unrecognized : .and {}

As far as I understand, "CSS validator" issues belong to the
www-validator-css list, so I'm Cc'ing it. I don't know whether this is
the right procedure, but I'd like to speed things up, since this looks
like a serious bug.
