DESCRIPTION: According to the CSS1 and CSS2 grammar, underscores should not be allowed directly within identifiers (they must be escaped). Mozilla is currently allowing them within identifiers (but not at the start). Unless this is going to be changed in CSS3, this should probably be fixed, at least for strict mode. STEPS TO REPRODUCE: * load http://www.people.fas.harvard.edu/~dbaron/css/test/xmltypesel ACTUAL RESULTS: * the fourth test line is red EXPECTED RESULTS: * it should be black DOES NOT WORK CORRECTLY ON: * Linux, mozilla, 2000-04-05-08-M15
Summary: underscores not allowed in CSS identifiers → underscores should not be allowed in CSS identifiers

Although we would ideally like to fix this for RTM, enforcing correct usage (fixing this bug) is a lower priority than enabling correct usage (which we do already in this case). Since there are other bugs where we're currently not yet enabling correct usage, we can FUTURE and relnote this if time runs out.
Who did fix that without telling me :-) ? David? Marc? Marking WorksForMe. Interestingly enough, last week I closed as Invalid a bug filed by someone who was complaining that underscores were not supported.

I thing David fixed this a month or more ago when he did some CSSParser reworking. I'm not positive, but that is my guess. Do you agree, David?
No, Marc, you fixed this in a checkin on May 4, checking in a patch contributed by VYV03354@nifty.ne.jp .
Yup - David's right. It was bug 38179. That was a dup of this one.

Netscape's standard compliance QA team reorganised itself once again, so taking remaining non-tables style bugs. Sorry about the spam. I tried to get this done directly at the database level, but apparently that is "not easy because of the shadow db", "plus it screws up the audit trail", so no can do...

This bug went from being a valid NEW bug to being a valid ASSIGNED bug to being a DUPLICATE bug to being a FIXED bug to being an INVALID bug. However, VERIFIED that it is WORKSFORME in that David's currently invalid testcase would pass if it was fixed.
