    77Next up, we have to parse the syntax for the new property. This is the syntax for the property which is described in the CSS spec.

    9 In WebKit, we parse CSS this in two pieces. The first step involves a Bison parser which doesn’t know anything about the particular syntax of each individual property. Instead, it simply understands the syntax of CSS itself (like what the {} characters mean, the difference between strings and idents, what an @-rule is, etc.). The language this Bison parser accepts is defined in CSSGrammar.y.in.

    1111Bison parsers work by issuing callbacks every time they apply a rule in their grammar. We implement these callbacks in CSSParser.cpp. Whenever the Bison parser invokes the grammar rule which represents a new CSS value, the callback constructs a CSSParserValue (This is actually done inside the Bison grammar  directly). When the parser invokes the grammar rule which represents a collection of values for a particular property, the callback constructs a CSSParserValueList. These data structures are retained by CSSParser.
