Bug 1315368. Back out changeset bf190e326bfd (bug 790997) because what it implements doesn't actually follow the CSS syntax editor's draft and breaks some sites in the process. r=dbaron, a=ritu

  // Identifier-like tokens.  mIdent is the text of the identifier.
  // The difference between ID and Hash is: if the text after the #

  // (+ or -) in front of the number.  If mIntegerValid is true, the
  // number had the lexical form of an integer, and mInteger is its
  // integer value.  Lexically integer values outside the range of a
  // 32-bit signed number are clamped to the maximum values; mNumber
  // will indicate a 'truer' value in that case.  Percentage tokens
  // are always considered not to be integers, even if their numeric
