    Hi Guys.

    I'm using this plugin and it's great. But, I'm wondering why there are so many CSS parse errors when I do a CSS validation on the W3C website (close to 100) on my website? Most of the CSS parse errors are for the Acronix buttons. Below are some sample errors:

    --------------
    229 .arconix-button-black attempt to find a semi-colon before the property name. add it
    229 .arconix-button-black Property progid doesn't exist : DXImageTransform
    229 .arconix-button-black Parse Error DXImageTransform.Microsoft.gradient(startColorstr='#666666', endColorstr='#000000');
    230 .arconix-button-black Parse Error }
    235 .arconix-button-black:hover attempt to find a semi-colon before the property name. add it
    235 .arconix-button-black:hover Property progid doesn't exist : DXImageTransform
    235 .arconix-button-black:hover Parse Error DXImageTransform.Microsoft.gradient(startColorstr='#444444', endColorstr='#000000');
    236 .arconix-button-black:hover Parse Error }
    241 .arconix-button-black:active attempt to find a semi-colon before the property name. add it
    --------------

    Thanks
    Steve

    Hi Steve,

    All those errors are related to a Microsoft (shocker, I know) proprietary CSS property called "filter". It is required for ie6 compatibility, but will fail w3c validation as it's not officially recognized. At this point it could probably be removed given that ie6 has such a small marketshare, so I'll look at doing that in the next release.

    Hi John. That's funny...I hardly ever even use Windows any more. I prefer Mac or Linux. One thing I know about MS after working in IT for so long is how they can "customize" standards. So, no surprise about this proprietary CSS property! I think it would be great if you could remove it, due to the overwhelming use of other browsers such as Chrome, Firefox, and later versions of IE. I hate seeing so many errors, even when the issue is not at your end :-) Thanks for an awesome plugin! BTW, is there a good guide to all the shortcodes (I looked at the wiki at https://arconixpc.fogbugz.com/default.asp?W1) for the shortcodes, but need some examples using the Google maps shortcode, or maybe how to add your own icon for the highlight boxes?

    Thanks!

    Hi Steve,

    I appreciate the kind words. I'm actually in the process of re-tooling the documentation for all of my plugins and will be putting those resources right on my site. I'll make sure to have some better examples on there, especially for the map shortcode since google has updated their maps system since the shortcode was created.
