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.
