Hi Tiziano.

Like David Dorward answered 8 days ago:
Experimental vendor extensions are not valid CSS and so should be flagged as errors.
That said, the options for the validator allow you to demote them to warnings [already].
(http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-validator-css/2012Jun/0008.html in answer to http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-validator-css/2012Jun/0007.html)

In other words, non of the properties using -webkit- / -moz- / -o- / -whatever- as a prefix is valid CSS and therfore correctly marked as errors.

In your second example the "opacity: 0;" isnt the problem, its the following "filter:Alpha(Opacity=0); " its IE syntax, just like the above -vendor- stuff...
-> not valid CSS

Unfortunately your site doesnt seem to be valid xhtml as well. just noting, because you mentioned it on your site...

  Onderwerp: Issues in your validator

  Dear sir

  i'm using your validator to validate the sites I made.

  When I use it to test the code that I manually write, I have not problems.
  Bu when I test it with sites made by CMSs it's a mess, because ou validator, express errors that there are not.

  Please look this site into your CSS validator:


  It highlights as errors, CSSs mpade by the plug-ins programmers.
  Now, checking the errors, I noticed there are not any on the CSSs!!
  indeed, for isntance:

  Sorry! We found the following errors (50)
  URI : http://www.kromalaser.com/wp-content/plugins/quick-post-widget/css/quick-post-widget.css?9d7bd4
        5 #quick_post_form Property -moz-border-radius doesn't exist : 10px 

  It's a pityt that the syntaxys is CORRECT. The property is correctly expressed:

#quick_post_form  {
	border: 1px solid #9f9f9f;
	padding: 5px 10px 5px 10px;
	margin: 0;
	-moz-border-radius: 10px;
	-khtml-border-radius: 10px;
	-webkit-border-radius: 10px;
	border-radius: 10px;
}Here some reference:

  But also here:
  URI : http://www.kromalaser.com/wp-content/plugins/quick-post-widget/css/jquery-ui.css?9d7bd4
        18 .ui-helper-zfix Parse Error Opacity=0)

  Here the synthaxys accepted worldwide:
  from the site:
img { opacity: 0.6; } img:hover { opacity: 1; }

  in other words it seems that your system has a lot of lacks.
  Please could you check ?

  Sincerely yours
