    The <number> CSS data type represents a number, either integer or fractional. Its syntax extends the one of the <integer> data value. To represent a fractional value, add the fractional part — a '.' followed by one or several decimal digits — to any <integer> data value. Like for <integer> data type, there isn't any unit associated to a <number>, which is not a CSS dimension.


    Values of the <number> CSS data type can be interpolated in order to allow animations. In that case they are interpolated as real, floating-point, numbers. The speed of the interpolation is determined by the timing function associated with the animation.


    These are valid number values:

    12          A raw <integer> is also a <number>
    4.01        A positive non-integer <number>
    -456.8      Negative non-integer <number>
    0.0         Zero
    +0.0        Zero, with a leading +
    -0.0        Zero, with a leading - (Though strange, this is an allowed value)
    .60         Digits are optional before the dot
    10e3        The scientific notation is allowed 
    -3.4e-2     Most complex case of scientific notation

    These are invalid number values:

    12.         The dot should be followed by a number
    +-12.2    Only one leading +/- is allowed
    12.1.1      Only one dot is allowed
