But then scroll down:

h2 {
      * color : #440000;
      * background-color : transparent;
      * font-size : 1.25em;
} 
  * h3 {
      * color : #440000;
      * background-color : transparent;
      * font-size : 1em;
      * margin : 0.5em 0;
}

It appears that it has been able to parse it, so what's the issue?
