Recently I started working with less.js and got stuck. I got the error "Ungültiges Argument." (engl. "Invalid Argument.").
I tried to fix my "css" for hours and nearly dropped the whole idea of using less. (Error occured only in IE)

Then I got it. I speak german, so I used "äöüÄÖÜ" in my comments, like "/ Ausnahme für Navigation /" etc.

That´s it!

Maybe someone will help this, saving a lot of time.
