Ever since yesterday it appears that your API has been choking on
background-color. Sending something as simple as:

h1 { color: #F00; background-color: #F00; }

results in an a Parse Error and it doesn't matter what the output type is.

Example:
http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/validator?text=h1+%7B+color%3A+%23F00%3B+background-color%3A+%23F00%3B+%7D&warning=0&profile=css2&output=soap12


via html
:
Value Error : background-color<http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-CSS2/colors.html#propdef-background-color>Parse
Error [empty
string]

via text:

Line : 1 h1
       (Value Error : background-color
(http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-CSS2/colors.html#propdef-background-color))
       Parse Error


via soap12

Value Error :  background-color (
http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-CSS2/colors.html#propdef-background-color)

                                Parse Error


The only thing I can find that comes close to relating is your faq for "Why
does the validator complain You have no background-color with your color?"
but that doesn't seem to have any bearing on this. It appears as thought the
api is just choking on all "background-color" since yesterday. Please help.
I have an app that relies on this.

Thanks,
Trevor
