------- Additional Comments From ewexler@stickdog.com  2004-10-21 22:10 -------
The core grammar given in CSS 2.1 allows successive semicolons
(<http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/syndata.html#tokenization>):

ruleset: selector? '{' S* declaration? [ ';' S* declaration? ]* '}' S*;

The same allowance has been in CSS2
(<http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-CSS2/syndata.html#tokenization>)
and in CSS1
(<http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-CSS1#appendix-b>).

There is no sign that the CSS3 syntax module
(<http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-syntax/#style>)
will change the allowance.
