Oh, sorry I missed that detail. Seems that I had stop reading after
"(A-Za-z), digits". By the way, the validator says: "Error: an attribute
value must be quoted if it contains any character other than letters
(A-Za-z), digits, hyphens, and periods;", so colons and underscores are
not mentioned, but should be according to the above URI.


NB: The "Revalidate" button still doesn't work for uploaded files.
