    This is invalid. The color value is invalid for two reasons: it is not
part of the font shorthand property [1], and it has the wrong number of
digits (a hex value should be either three characters or six characters,
preceded by a hash mark -- although I assume your missing digit is just a
typo) [2]. Instead, the color of the text may only be set by using the color
property. Additionally, your order of values is invalid. Instead, it should
be written as:

font-weight font-size font-family

    So, the correct presentation is:

font: normal 1em Tahoma ;
color: #666666 ;
