What in a CSS stylesheet should be translated?

What in a CSS stylesheet should be translated? Here is an example:

http://screencast.com/t/UoS1YJuU

You can see that for "F:Figure {Gn+}" I have translated to "F: figur {Gn+}". Is that correct, to insert a blank space after the colon (even though the source has no such blank space)?

And also, "P:({n+})" I have inserted a blank space after the colon in my translation to Swedish.

But it says in the file name: xxxStylesheet.css

Or do you think it's not a CSS-stylesheet at all?

Yes, but that's not the end of the filename. It's a *.xlf file, which seems to be used with Xcelsius.

The code shown there is not CSS3 code.

In stylesheets the things you might need to change for different languages would be the values of the "content" and "quotes" properties; various things if you were changing to a language that's right-to-left instead of left-to-right or vice-versa; and perhaps the fonts used, depending on if you're using characters that aren't found in the current set of fonts. Also if the stylesheet contains attribute selectors, some of those might need to be changed as well.
