You should post the CSS code and/or URL, not an image (which was hard to 
read in this case).

I can confirm that there is a bug in the CSS Validator: the code

html { background-image: radial-gradient(ellipse farthest-corner at 
center, #ffffff 0%,#f5f5f5 0%, #e1e1e1 100%)}

is reported as erroneous, with the message

Value Error : background-image ellipse farthest-corner at center is not 
a radial-gradient value )

This bug was reported in the list in April:
There have been no comments to it, as far as I can see. CSS Image Values 
and Replaced Content Module Level 3 has been Candidate Recommendation 
since 17 April 2012, so it should be regarded as part of "CSS3" as far 
as CSS validation is concerned.

That's correct.
