normalize.css

I have several highlighted red words in my normalize.css code:

audio,
canvas,
video {
    display: inline-block;
    *display: inline;
    *zoom: 1; 
LINE 35 THE WORD zoom IS IN RED

html {
    font-size: 100%; /* 1 */
    -webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%; /* 2 */
    -ms-text-size-adjust: 100%; /* 2 */
}
LINE 70 AND 71 THE WORDS text-size-adjust ARE IN RED

img {
    border: 0; /* 1 */
    -ms-interpolation-mode: bicubic; /* 2 */
}
LINE 333 THE WORDS interpolation-mode ARE IN RED

DOES ANYBODY KNOW HOW TO FIX THAT?

Markus,

I reformatted your code for the sake of readability. For future reference, you can use the "markdown cheatsheet" below to format your post.

Happy coding!

Hi Chris, thanks for the tip but I can't find the code you did for the sake of readability.

Markus,

I didn't add any code, I reformatted your normalize.css code using Markdown. Sorry if that was confusing.

In my experience red means that the text editor doesn't understand the term. When using established scrips like normalize, I just ignore it and have not had a problem.

I believe Theodore is right. What application are you using to write html and css code. Workspaces seem like a good choice to begin with, but if you wish to work offline, something as simple as textEdit for mac or Notepad for Windows is sufficient. Else get something more versatile such as Sublime text.

Hope this helps
