#64 Invalid rule stops processing the following declarations


My css file contains this invalid line:
The problem is that the parser ignores the rest of the document. Is it possible to just skip over the broken line?

here's what I see in the stderr:

null [394:12] Error in style rule. (Invalid token ".5". Was expecting one of: <S>, <LBRACE>, ".", ":", "[", <COMMA>, <HASH>, <S>.)
null [394:12] Ignoring the following declarations in this rule.
null [454:138] Error in declaration. (Invalid token ".". Was expecting one of: <S>, ":".)
null [641:15] Error in style sheet. (Invalid token "0.75in0". Was expecting one of: <EOF>, <S>, <IDENT>, "<!--", "-->", ".", ":", "*", "[", <HASH>, <IMPORT_SYM>, <PAGE_SYM>, <MEDIA_SYM>, <ATKEYWORD>.)

Have tried with 0.9.19 maven build

    Forgot to mention, the browsers I have tested with so far, including latest Chrome and Firefox, have no problem interpreting the rules following the invalid declaration.

    Looks like browsers are restarting after the next closing bracket

    This is hopefully fixed. Please try the latest snapshot build.

      Thanks for working on this. I have tested the 0.9.20-SNAPSHOT; there is a problem however, the very next valid rule is skipped as well. I am not sure whether intentional or not, it'd be nice to have that fixed as well, if at all possible.

      .red { color: red }
      .blue { color: blue }
      .green { color: green }

      .red { color: red }
      .green { color: green }

      Thus the .blue class rule is skipped.

        Two reasons for this behaviour
        1. Browsers are doing the same (you can check this with the sample i have attached in the previous comment
        2. The parser needs to find some point to start with parsing again. And that is not that simple. The restart point is now the next '}'

          I understand. I had an idea this might be the case, thanks for confirming.
