Item for CSS checker upgrade wish list (Possible bug)

Andy Walker


I don’t' think this needs to be posted on the message board.
It's a request for a possible upgrade to the CSS validator to help
people like me who can't type :)

Basically I missed out the # character in front of a colour (i.e. I
wrote cbe6f7 rather than #cbe6f7)

The error message I received (invalid number) had me chasing different
colours - and different colour formats - etc before I spotted my
It would just be nice if the checker could identify an attempt at using
a hex colour value and point out the missing # character..
