Live CSS oddity

I've just noticed something which is not terribly important but which niggles my OCD tendencies.

A CSS rule "page-break-before: always" is displayed in the Live CSS panel as "break-before: page". But if you have a rule that really says "break-before: page", the Check Book validation flags it with a warning: "Unknown property name".

Presumably there's a mismatch between the CSS version used by Live CSS and Check Book. Not life-threatening, but niggly.

break-before is CSS 3 so not supported by check book. Live CSS uses a browser engine, which does support CSS 3.

@Kovid

Do you plan to upgrade Check Book to support CSS3 at some point?

I still find it interesting that the CSS2 rule is understood and transformed for display purposes into the CSS3 equivalent.

CSS3 support for Check Book would be a Good Thing IMHO, as apart from this niggle, there are other common CSS3 constructs used in modern ebooks that are reported as warnings, or sometimes even as errors (e.g. the use of "vh" in a height specification is reported as an error).

@Psstphok nothing interesting about it. page-break-* properties have been deprecated and replaced by break-* properties so browsers automatically replace them.
