(CssLint)Rule is empty RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm revamping a web site I built a few years ago in VS 2015, but now I have VS 2017, and doing lots of cleanup, like adding the slashes to the end of input tags and the like.

    There is one I don't understand: It's giving me an error in my style.css file at the body tag: (CssLint)Rule is empty.

    My body tag looks like this:

    body {
        margin: 0;
        padding: 0;
        background: #28281F url(img01.jpg) repeat-x left top;
        font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
        font-size: 14px;
        color: #19130D;
    It doesn't seem to complain about the others.

  • The same error is probably reported if you have ‘body { }’, i.e. an empty style.

    Did you try to remove this fragment and check again? Maybe remove, then re-type or paste the definition.
