[oXygen-user] How can I ignore invalid CSS?

Thanks Jostein,

oXygen cannot find that CSS and then it is a little draconian in 
handling this error. I also tested by pointing to 
http://twitter.github.io/bootstrap/assets/css/bootstrap.css and this 
also gives a fatal error that prevents oXygen from building the CSS 
model to render the document.

I am afraid there is not much to do other than fixing that reference to 
point to a reachable location that contains a valid CSS - it can be an 
empty CSS file.

We recorded a few enhancements we need to do for such cases

1. pass the CSS through the XML Catalog, this will allow you to redirect 
an existing CSS location to a local CSS file that you can control.

2. Try to make our implementation more forgiving wrt such errors.

3.. Add an option in the framework configuration to allow ignoring the 
CSS specified inside a file and use the CSSes defined in the framework 

Thanks again for bringing this issue to our attention and I am sorry 
that we cannot provide an immediate solution to this problem.
