#7322 closed Bug (fixed)

Valid font specification not being handled by the editor properly

Reported by: lynne_kues Owned by: garry.yao
Priority: Normal Milestone: CKEditor 3.5.4
Component: Core : Styles Version: 3.5.2
Keywords: IBM Cc: idzelis@…


Open the editor with the attached html. Click on the various fonts. Notice that the font picker does not recognize the font.

The w3 specification for font-family states that font "family names" must be quoted strings. It specifically "recommends" that fonts with spaces in their name should be quoted, and explicitly shows an example of a font without quotes as invalid.

i.e. (this is specifically mentioned as invalid) font-family: Hawaii 5-0, sans-serif;


The editor should correctly recognize this type of font specification. In addition, the editor should be generating the font specification according to w3 specification.

Propose for font-family normalization in our styles system:

  1. Dismiss quotes;
  2. Case insensitive (most of the browsers handles font family names that way)
