  Sorry.  I subscribed with the address my new ISP provided me.  But
it doesn't allow me to post only text :-(.

  Ok.  I configured Emacs to insert insecable whitespaces begore ';'.
Only in Text Mode, off course, not in programming language Modes.
But I edit CSS in... Text Mode.  Thanks for the solution.  Mea

  Thanks, and sorry for the disturbance,
