Hello Melinda,

I have forwarded your message to the CSS validator list, I believe  
you sent it to the markup validator list by mistake. I am setting the  
reply-to to the former, please follow-up on the css validator's list.

I am only marginally aware of this css3 module, but it is very likely  
that the css3 profile of the validator is not up to date.  
Unfortunately at this time, the resources dedicated to the css  
validator, either staffed or volunteer, are too little to properly  
follow css specifications currently in development, as they are  
moving targets for us - we mostly work on bugs regarding mature specs  
and usability.

Keeping the validator up to date with moving specs would however be  
an easier job for people involved in developing them, i.e, members of  
the CSS working group. I have already asked the WG if there was any  
interest in helping maintain the profiles of specifications being  
worked on by the group (css2.1, css3) but I have not yet received any  
substantially positive answer from the group. If I am not mistaken,  
you are part of the group, would you like to get the topic on its  

Thank you,
