            Bug ID: 24217
           Summary: Non-ASCII characters in selectors cause an error
                    message in direct input
           Product: CSSValidator
           Version: CSS Validator
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Windows NT
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: text area
          Assignee: dave.null@w3.org
          Reporter: jukka.k.korpela@kolumbus.fi
        QA Contact: www-validator-cvs@w3.org

Example:

.méxico { display: inline }

Submitted via file input (in a file encoded as UTF-8 with BOM), it passes, as
expected. When submitted via direct input, the validator reports:

Lexical error at line 1, column 3. Encountered: "?" (63), after : "" .m??xico {
display: inline }

Adding @charset "utf-8"; at the start does not help. So apparently the
validator cannot read non-Ascii data.

As a minimal fix, please add a remark about this in the Validate by Direct
Input user interface.
