CSS Validation oddity

Message-ID: <003601c98e78$aff9e760$0fedb620$@net>
main site: olivejar.net

index page minus mobile redirect: http://www.olivejar.net/lessindex.php

mobile site: olivejar.mobi

 

The Olivejar site (www.olivejar.net) is less than 10 pages and all pages
share the same CSS (http://www.olivejar.net/css/ojpcs-web-2009.css)

 

Other than content, all pages are the same except for index.php, which has a
mobile browser detecting script (http://detectmobilebrowsers.mobi)   If it
sees you are on a mobile device, it sends you over to the mobile version of
the site.

 

So anyway, in validating the CSS for the main site, an odd thing happens.
It seems that somehow that script is effect the results of the CSS test.
Even odder is that the "problematic" lines do not exist anywhere within any
code on either site.  Further, the redirect script, as far as I can see, is
not responsible for inserting the "bad results."

 


W3C CSS Validator results for http://www.olivejar.net/index.php (CSS level
2.1)


Sorry! We found the following errors (3)


URI : http://www.olivejar.mobi


11

body 

Property scrollbar-base-color doesn't exist : #005b70 


12

body 

Property scrollbar-arrow-color doesn't exist : #f3960b 


13

body 

Property scrollbar-darkshadow-color doesn't exist : #000000 

 

"scrollbar-xxxx-color" nor any of the color codes exist on my site anywhere.

 

Validate the CSS from olivejar.mobi and it passes.

Validate the CSS from any page other than index.php from olivejar.net and it
passes.

Validate the CSS on the "lessindex.php" page, which is index.php with the
first line removed (the mobile redirect) and is passes.

 

Might someone there have an idea where this would be coming from?
