Description

17 years ago
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.0rc2)
Gecko/20020510
BuildID:    2002051006

The links should be green, red when the mouse hovers over them.  Also, the font
size should be 18 point in both cases.  In Mozilla, the text is "normal" size
and style, until the mouse hovers over the link, at which time it takes the
correct hover style.  The link text never reverts to the correct non-hover style.


Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Load the page
2.Mouse over one of the links
3.Observe the changes.

You can click on the "no error" link to see what should happen.


The correct page works because the style information is inline.  The same style
info in an external style link does not work.

Actually, the A:hover properties are correct.  The "A" (non-hover) properties
are not correct.

Two things:

1) This problem still exists in Mozilla 1.1

2) The error URL (at adelphia.net) will probably go away sometime soon, since I
will be moving and switching service providers.  The site where I originally
found the bug was http://www.pcnation.com .  Their links usually exhibit the
same problem.  (I say usually because I did notice that they had inlined their
styles for a while, when I was originally trying to figure out what the problem
was :)

Example of a CSS style in a <a> tag not being drawn properly.

test.html draws a <p> paragraph and a <a> link formatted with the same CSS
style.	:hover is defined for both the <p> and the <a> to change the background
color.	The paragaph :hover is drawn correctly, the CSS style in the <a> is
not.

Example of a CSS style in a <a> tag not being drawn properly.

<html>
<head>
<title>This is a test page</title>

<style type = "text/css">

p.test		{
			width: 200;
			height: 25;
		}

a.test2 	{	
			width: 200;
			height: 25;
		}

p.test:hover	{
			background-color: #a20000;
		}

a.test2:hover	{	
			background-color: #a20000;
		}


</style>
</head>



<body>


<p class="test">This is a paragraph.</p>
<a class="test2" href="http://mozilla.org">This is a link.</a>



</body>
</html>

Adding "position: absolute" to the style definition seems to fix the box
problem.  Relative or static positioning of a <a> element results in the box
being drawn improperly.

Actually, I did some more testing, and it seems that the *FIRST* style defined
in an external .css file is not loaded - all others are.

Using a modification of your (Jeff Fernandez) code, and separating the style
info into another file, I was able to isolate the issue.

Here is the code:
in file AnotherStyle.css:
<style type="text/css">
p.test		{
			color: #0000FF;
			background-color: #303030;
		}
p.test:hover	{
			color: #20C020;
		}
a		{
			color: #00AA00;
		}
a:hover		{
			color: #FF0000;
			background-color: #404040;
		}
</style>


in AnotherErrorPage.html:
<html>
<head>
  <title>This is a test page</title>
  <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="AnotherStyle.css">
</head>
<body>
<p class="test">This is a paragraph.</p>
<a href="http://mozilla.org">This is a link.</a>
</body>
</html>

With this version of the style sheet, the "test" class normal text is unmodified.
If you swap the positions of the p.test and the p.test:hover properties, then
the hover style is wrong, but the normal style is correct.  (Sorry for inlining
- I couldn't create an attachment with two files.)

Incidentally, (Jeff), I think the problems you are pointing out are not related
to this bug (except that they both relate to styles :)

A little more info:
The DOM inspector lists only 3 styles for the stylesheet I posted earlier. 
(Makes sense to me - the DOM inspector should be using the same style-reading
routines as the browser)

Also, if I add an empty set of curly brackets (or a line like "bogus { }")
before the first "real" style, then all of the subsequent styles are correctly set.

Reproduced in 1/03/03 Trunk. Testcase keyword added.
Keywords: testcase
OK.  Looks like in a year not one QA person looking at this actually knew any
CSS....

In an external stylesheet, all data is parsed as style data.  So the first rule
in that sheet has the selector: '<STYLE TYPE="text/css"> <!-- A'.  This is not a
possible CSS2 (or CSS3 for that matter) selector, so we assume that it's a
future version of CSS that we do not support (per CSS parsing rules) and drop
the first rule in the sheet (since we could not parse its selector).

This bug is invalid.
