[oXygen-user] CSS editor could persist parameter drop-down

Hello Hedley,

Yes, the code completion window should not force you to enter the 
property value with no spaces after the ':' character. It looks neater 
with separating spaces between the ':' character and the property value. 
I added an issue to our internal system for ending the code completion 
only in one of the cases that you specified.
