As far as I can see in the specification CSS files can contain all possible
Unicode characters if the "@charset" declaration in them allows that.

There seem to be 2 problems in the CssParser.jj file.
First, in the options{} block you should set the "UNICODE_INPUT = true;"
property so that the parser can handle unicode chars if the reader was
correctly built.
Then, the NONASCII token should probably be declared as:  ~["\000"-"\177"]
This means anything but ASCII.

I will try to attach 2 test files. The XML is correctly displayed in Firefox
but the validator complains about the CSS file
