#45168 new defect (bug)

Additional CSS complains of markup inside CSS comments

When adding CSS to a site via Appearance > Customize > Additional CSS, the syntax validator will complain if it finds markup regardless of it being inside a /* */ comment.

Steps to replicate:

  1. Go to Admin > Appearance > Customize > Additional CSS
  2. Add a comment with some markup in it

/* this is <a> markup test */

  1. Hit Publish
  2. See attached error message - but note that no indicator as to what line contains the markup appears.

The only workaround is to remove the markup from the comment.

Ideally the syntax validator should not care about anything in CSS comment blocks.
