According to Section 7.1 (forward-compatible parsing):

"in CSS1, selectors (element names, classes and IDs) can contain only the
characters A-Z, 0-9, and Unicode characters 161-255, plus dash (-); they
cannot start with a dash or a digit; ..."

Forward-thinking recommendation, I'd say. So, Eric *does* need to alter the
test (or text) which uses .1 as a class, and valid CSS1 style sheets are
still valid CSS2 style sheets.

Thanks to eva for the actual cite.
