Re: colors


The validator as it is now in CVS is entirely up to date with all the newest
CSS3 specs, even working drafts. Except CSS 2.1. The intention is to update
CSS3 in the validator when new specs are published. CRs have a higher
priority Updating the validator however depends on time available for the
developers. Currently that is mostly me and I have to do it in my spare
time, so I hope we can keep the validator up to date in the future too.

CSS2.1 will be in the validator as a separate profile.
