That is the CSS 2.1 working draft. By default the validator uses the
most recent recomendation, which is CSS 2. CSS 2 does not all keyword
values to be mixed with length/percentage values.

If you select the CSS 2.1 profile from the advanced interface then the
CSS 2.1 syntax you are using will be accepted.
