Fine (although font sizes for screen specific in pixels are considered

> #99CCFF}

No color property specified.

> background-color: #99CCFF}

No color property specified.

> ..ProtectedArea {font-size:9px; float:right; background-color: #99CCFF}

No color property specified (and again with the pixels).
