Hi Sam,

lightyellow is an extended color keyword in CSS 3 (
http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-color/#svg-color), not 2.1 (the version you've set
the validator to in that URL,
http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/syndata.html#color-units).

If you simply change the profile URL parameter to css3 (or select it on this
page - http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/#validate_by_uri+with_options) it
validates (http://bit.ly/muR3C0 is valid!).

Hope this helps,

Dan Beam
