Hi,

I've contacted the owner of the webpage and told him to put # before the color 
codes. 

He did that. 

However one could explain me, how is it possible that the original page passed 
the w3c validator, without the #. So either the validator, or mozilla not 
following the recommendations.

Thanks, LAci X. Marking FIXED.

As concerns W3C validator, it seems it is less strindent than the W3C DTDs.
Another  non-standard behavior it accepts are spaces in IMG USEMAP uri.
