Stylesheet Firefox Issue...

Hi,

I have this in my stylesheet:

.star-rating a.1stars-active
{
      background: url(/images/star_rating.gif) left bottom;
      width: 20px;
}

I got this from another website, so I don't EXACTLY understand what they're trying to do.  But I get this warning in Firefox.

Warning: Expected ',' or '{' but found '0.2stars'.  Ruleset ignored due to bad selector.
Source File: http://localhost/stars.css
Line: 78

Any suggestions about how I can fix it, while still having it do what it's meant to do?  Seems to work fine in IE.

EJ

You probably have HTML syntax in you CSS file, such as:
    <style> ... </style> or
    <!-- ... //-->

Neither of these belong in a CSS file.

P.S.
The link you provide goes to YOUR local server.  It inaccessible to the world!
You can attach it or copy-paste it next time. Or even provide a live link.

The style should probably look like this:

.star-rating a:active
{
      background: url(/images/star_rating.gif) left bottom;
      width: 20px;
}

This style states that there is a class called star-rating which when applied to a container, all A tags (links) when active will have the background and width adjusted as above.

Classes may not start with a number.
