It does recognize them, but it treats them as they are, non-conforming.

You can, however, make the W3C CSS Validator report them as warnings and 
not as errors. This does not make them any more conforming, but you will 
find it easier to analyze other errors, when messages are not intervened 
by messages about constructs that you use on purpose.

For this, click on "More Options", then select "Warnings" from the 
"Vendor Extensions" menu.

Can also suppress all warnings, by selecting "No warnings" from the 
"Warnings" menu. I wouldn't recommend that, though; you may miss other, 
more relevant warnings then.
