CSS not compiling in Visual Studio

Hey,

Is there a way to exclude files from compiling in Visual Studio?

I'm using visual studio C#...  I'm running into problems with CSS files which contain tags which are causing errors when compiling.

As you see in the code sample below there is a # in from on Position and Tab which the compiler doesn't like.  I have tried not using the #, but then the divs are not aligning properly.

Thanks!
* html #footer {

	height:42px; 

	he\ight:40px;  /* THE \ (SLASH) IS NOT COMPILING */

}

 

#headerContentLeft {#position: relative; #top: -50%; float:left;}  /* THE # IN FRONT OF POSITION AND TAB ARE CAUSING PROBLEMS */

Open in new window

Can you show the entire file that this is in?

That shouldn't be a compiler error that would stop the application.  That should just be a warning when the file is open in the designer.  You should be able to ignore those errors, as long as the CSS entries are valid.

The compilier was complaining about css and color "lightblue" only when other errors where present.  I just had to go to the bottom of the error list and see what the real problem was.

"lightblue" is an unknown color by the HTML parser, but is a valid attribute for CSS.  To avoid the warning, you can use HTML colors (i.e. #ff78a0).
