           Summary: The CSS Validator does not treat many valid CSS3
                    properties as valid
           Product: CSSValidator
           Version: CSS Validator
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: blocker
          Priority: P2
         Component: CSS 3
        AssignedTo: dave.null@w3.org
        ReportedBy: esnyder@openfox.com
         QAContact: www-validator-cvs@w3.org

word-wrap: break-word
overflow-wrap: break-word

Both of these generate an error in the CSS Validator:
"Property word-wrap doesn't exist : break-word"
"Property overflow-wrap doesn't exist : break-word"

These are both valid CSS3 properties and break-word does, in fact, exist.  Why
is the CSS Validator not treating them as valid CSS?  Why does the CSS
Validator error out the way that it does?  The CSS Validator claims that it
will validate CSS level 3, but it doesn't appear to be working properly.  This
submission page only shows CSS2.1 in the component description, is the CSS
Validator actually doing CSS3 validation, as it claims, or not?  This error is
causing issues with sites that demand W3C validated CSS.
