Line: 181 Context : #dhtmltooltip

Parse Error - DXImageTransform.Microsoft.Shadow(color=gray,direction=135);

When i try to validate my stylesheet on W3, it gives me errors on these lines above?

Is there anyway i can fix it to allow it validate?

You can take those out and put them into an IE only stylesheet using conditional comments to hide them from the validator and other browsers.

<!--[if IE]>
<link rel="stylesheet" href="iestyle.css" type="text/css" />


#dhtmltooltip {
filter: progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.Shadow(color=gray,direction=135);
.myIframe,.myIframe0,.myIframe2_R,.myIframe2_M,.myIframe3,.myIframe4,.myIframe5,.myIframe6 {
filter: progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.Alpha(style=0, opacity=0);

What aero didn't specifically say is, the reason that code does not validate is that it is not standard code and only works in IE.
