Hello!

<http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/validator?uri=http://schneegans.de/temp/space-preserve-pass.html>
"validates as CSS" as expected.
<http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/validator?uri=http://schneegans.de/temp/space-preserve-fail.html>
has exactly the same canonical form, the only difference is in the
attribute order of the root element, yet the CSS Validator reports a
misleading error:

  Parse Error - space='preserve' type='text/css'>p { color: blue; }

Furthermore,
<http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-validator-css/2006Jul/0006.html>
has not been commented on yet. What's the status of this problem?
