Full details are in the Ubuntu bug db: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+bug/117516 but they've asked me to re-post it here. It's been seen in every version since at least 2.0.x. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: See link above. An example demonstrating the problem is here: http://launchpadlibrarian.net/27176943/closing-div.html The interesting part is the second DIV block defined in that HTML. Actual Results: CSS style from self-closing DIV node "leaks" out to affect elements which are not in that DIV's branch of the DOM. Expected Results: CSS style should be applied only to the affected DIV element.
