Sorry, the thread wasn't in my question...

'overflow-wrap' generates essentially the same error in the validator as word-wrap did:
"Property overflow-wrap doesn't exist : break-word"...

What does this indicate?  Is this a bug in Jigsaw or is there actually an error in my CSS?
The CSS appears to be valid and the error is a bit confusing.  The tags do exist...
