    'x-next' being inserted into .css

    Angela Fort

      We are required to do a W3C CSS validation of all projects. I actually wrote my css without using the Styles and Formatting pod. I didn't add any 'x-next' into my styles, but they get inserted anyway, as you will see below:


      H2 {
      font-weight: bold;
      font-style: normal;
      margin-left: 0px;
      color: #000000;
      font-family: Arial;
      font-size: 20px;
      letter-spacing: normal;
      margin-bottom: 6px;
      x-next-class: ;
      x-next-type: P;
      margin-top: 24px;


      I noticed in a sample they also had these all over the table styles:


      table.Colorful1 {

      padding: 0px;

      border-left-style: Solid;

      border-left-width: 1px;

      border-left-color: #000000;

      border-top-style: Solid;

      border-top-width: 1px;

      border-top-color: #000000;

      x-border-spacing: 0px;

      x-1st-row: 1;

      x-1st-row-name: row1;

      x-1st-col: 1;

      x-1st-col-name: col1;



      When you use the W3C Validation Service (http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/#validate_by_input), these show as

      parse errors (Property x-next-type doesn't exist : P P ). Why does RoboHelp keep inserting these into my css? Since we are not allowed to publish anything that isn't 100% validated, I have to continually remove these. Does this have any negative impact on my projects? Why are W3C deprecated items allowed by RH?
