Hello there

I realise that my question may not even find an audience as I am not a 
member but I feel the need to ask anyway.

Up until recently my CSS rules when combing a color with a background 
declaration of transparent were being accepted by the validator as good 
code. However, in the last few weeks I have been issued warnings about 
not declaring a background-color whenever I have used transparent. Bug 
768 in Bugzilla lists this but doesn't give much in the way of 
reasoning behind the decision to issue the warning.

Will the validator allow transparent for such a rule in the future or 
should I now look to recode all the CSS documents where I have used 
such a rule?

This is causing some confusion and annoyance. Hope you take pity on 
this poor coder and provide some sort of enlightenment.

Many thanks
