Validation Error

P: n/a

On this page
www.samurdermysteries.co.za
I have the following code:
<h3 style="margin:1em,0,1em,0.5em;">What makes South African Murder
Mysteries different:</h3>
<ul class="IndexList">
....(snip)
<li>Fully facilitated.</li>
</ul>

The relevant part of the stylesheet is as follows:
..IndexList {margin:0,0,0,1.5em;}
..IndexList li {margin:0,0,1em,0;}

Jigsaw gives an error message like this:
Invalid number: margin, is an incorrect operator: 0,0,0,1.5em

I don't understand the error message, so can't fix it.

(code does not work in Firefox or IE7, but does work as I want it to in
IE5.5!)

Could someone please explain to me what the error is.

Thanks
MG

Because Firefox and IE7 are correctly ignoring the invalid rule, no
commas for each value:

margin: 0 0 0 1.5em;

Take care,
