Sink or swim time for mini_CSS

I contributed a small grammar for parsing CSS to Grammatica - I always wanted to use a parser generator and the experience was just as mindwarping, challenging and satisfying as I'd hoped.

Unfortunately the owner of the project I'd hoped might use the CSS parser came up with a different solution, but I wrote mini_CSS in my own time, it works surprisingly well (eg no problem parsing the stylesheets for the wonderful CSS Zen Garden) and it seems a shame to waste it, so time to let it loose into the wild, to sink or to swim.
