For SWF, CSS is encoded into a data structure of name value pairs.  The
value can be a String, Number, reference to a class, Array, probably some
other things as well.

The SWF code can do pretty much whatever it wants with those values.  The
goal is for the compiler to convert the CSS into a useful data structure
that doesn't take too much framework code to process.  So doing things
like converting RGBA to a hexadecimal number is preferred but there are no
hard rules.

I don't know if linear-gradient can be specified in other CSS style
property values.  I guess it would be best to define a SWF data structure
that best represents the data.  I see in a CSS spec that linear-gradient
can have lots of different parameters.  We want the compiler to handle
that and maybe output an array of values.  The framework can read that
array and determine how to draw the gradient.  The first thing in the
array could be the string "linear-gradient" so you know what follows.

In Flex CSS there were often properties with names that ended with "Alpha"
but that isn't CSS compliant.  Instead, it appears that alpha is generally
specified via RGBA.  So the compiler and framework should probably handle
RGBA instead of separate *Alpha properties.

Good luck,
