This bug has been apprently fixed,
I'm not getting this error anymore. :)

But... there's another one:
http://img358.imageshack.us/img358/2955/bgnotvalid5ia.png

Its *not* allowed to specify position units:
background: url(gfx/style/bg_header.gif) no-repeat *0 0*;

.... but it validates, when I use it so:
background: url(gfx/style/bg_header.gif) no-repeat *left top*;
.... or even so:
background: url(gfx/style/bg_header.gif) no-repeat *0% 0%*;

Why is it like that? :)
