Description _ krystyna 2007-11-04 16:45:42 UTC
NetBeans IDE Dev (Build 200711041204)
Java: 1.6.0_03; Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM 1.6.0_03-b02
System: Windows XP version 5.1 running on x86; Cp1252; en_US (nb)

The following valid CSS filter rules are flagged as errors and turn off stylebuilder for
the rule and all subsequent rules following. There is a workaround to manually
edit rules. 

.CbReadOnly_sun4,.RbReadOnly_sun4 {
         filter: alpha(opacity=45); 
.CbDis_sun4, .RbDis_sun4 {
         filter: alpha(opacity=40);

I am affraid the css code is not valid, check on

Comment 2 Winston Prakash 2007-11-04 18:48:17 UTC
Marek, I understand this is not a CSS standard.
But unfortunately supported by some of the browsers such as IE and Firefox.

It may be OK to mark these as non standard, but not as error. If we mark them
as error and stop Style Builder from displaying, that makes CSS editor very
limited and unusable for several cases, since there are lots of deviation
from standard.

Another point to note that, unlike several languages, CSS is not a language
at all. It is a hint to the user agent (browser) to display certain things in a certain
way. It is up to the user agent to honor them or ignore not mark as error.  

If you look at some of the CSS editors in the W3C website, they seem to support all
kind of extensions.

I'm reopening this bug as an Enhancement for future release.
