I have no idea whether this is related, but I recall reading somewhere
recently (can't remember where exactly, sorry) that CSS sometimes has
issues if you combine units (eg. pixels, ems, percentages) and keywords
(white, smaller, etc) within a rule. Since I can't pinpoint the source
of this info at the moment I'm a little hazy on the details, but I would
assume that it would only apply to shorthand declarations where more
than one thing is being set in a single rule.
Sorry for being so vague, but I've been reading CSS stuff non-stop for
weeks and I just can't remember where I read this. Online, offline, it's
all a blur!
Maybe it's connected. Maybe not.
