validating css stylesheet with w3org
my css file contains
scrollbar-base-color: #454646; and some other elements to customize the scrollbars. when validating I get told that that is not valid css. is there another method to customize the scrollabrs and create valid css?

I thought that was IE only.

anyway I found a way - I am using an iframe and i wanted to color the scrollbars that appear in my page with the colors i use on my page. i cut out the scrollbars lines from my css file and added it locally to the page that is loaded in the iframe. so the page is still valid xhtml/css also the page from the iframe is not

Yeah, to the best of my knowledge, all the css scrollbar styling stuff is IE only, and the w3c does not allow it (as far as validation, anyway).
Pop, pop, fizz, fizz, oh what a relief it is!

you should avoid using css extensions or browser specific "css"
and aslong as the extensions doesn't comform to w3's naming policy you shouldn't use them.
don't promote mangled code.

thx for the info
anyway its only a small glitch. i have only one page where i use an irfame and that iframe has to have scrollbars. and the standard white scrollbars do not fit in my design, so i will have a page (the one used inside the iframe that is not css validated.
i will just have to live with that.
