CSS Warning when using text-justify

    Hi,

    I have a XHTML file and CSS file, both of which validate without errors but
    the CSS validator gives a single warning:

    " Line : 0 property text-justify does not exist for this profile, but is
    validated conforming to another profile "

    The offending lines of code are:

    ..cont {

    text-align: justify;
    text-justify: auto;

    }

    If anyone could explain why I get this message I'd be grateful.


    Thanks

    You told it to check against CSS 2, but text-justify isn't part of CSS 2. It
    is part of the CSS 3 draft.

    What the hell is text-justify? Get rid of it, it's not doing anything and
    AFAIK it doesn't currently exist.

    Hope that helps,

    Nick.

    Blimey, that was quick. Thank you David. Is there anything in CSS2 that
    would acheive the same effect?

    Cheers

    Not haven't gotten around to reading about it in CSS 3 - I don't know. I'd
    hazard a guess that there isn't though - otherwise there wouldn't be much
    point in adding the property!

    You were using "text-justify:auto" which is default I think. Just leave it
    out.

    Hey you're right! :) Many thanks. So....if I try to override the default
    value with the default value I get a warning. Hmmm.....

    It isn't the default in CSS2, it doesn't exist in CSS2.

    A Microsoft extension, see
    <http://msdn.microsoft.com/workshop/author/dhtml/reference/properties/
    textjustify.asp>
    which is making its way into CSS 3.

    > Get rid of it, it's not doing anything


    It does, though setting it explicitly to the default value normally has
    no effect.

    The real problem is text-align: justify. People use it because they think
    justified text looks better. But this is generally a mistake, see
    http://www.cs.tut.fi/~jkorpela/www/justify.html

    > and AFAIK it doesn't currently exist.


    Well, let's not get ontological. Ontologies are for weenies.
