No, it isn't. CSS parsing is a colossal mess in which many stylesheets 
depend on specific bugs in specific versions of specific browsers.

The inability of vendors to correctly implement the much simpler CSS 
parsing rules makes me wonder whether we have any hope that they will 
correctly implement the far more complex HTML 5 parsing algorithm.
