View Full Version : Cannot find validation error

08-07-2007, 06:53 PM
I tried to validate my CSS and receive this error:

URI : http://www.doriennesmith.com/
61 Value Error : font Parse Error - [empty string]

I think this is usually the error received if the property "font" is used for a single value, eg:
font: bold; However, I have checked both of the style sheets on the page and neither contains the error.

Here are the style sheets: home.css (http://www.doriennesmith.com/home.css) and main.css (http://www.doriennesmith.com/main.css). Please, can anyone tell me where my error lies?

Many thanks!

The font shortcut property must have at least the font family and one of the other values (font size, style, etc.), I believe. You canít just say font: bold;, you have to say at least font: bold Arial, Helvetica, Sans-serif;.

I know and I have checked and re-checked both style sheets and I do not do that anywhere, so I cannot see why I am still having the error...

Both stylesheets seem to validate. Did you fix the problem?

I found the issue. It was not in the style sheet but on a single inline styled tag on the index page. The error only shows up when I put the site uri into the CSS validator. Thanks anyways.
