#6446 closed Bug (duplicate)

Element style trashing in IE7 due to case change

Reported by: Dinu Owned by: Garry Yao
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: Core : Output Data Version: 3.4.1
Keywords: IE Cc:


In IE7, the styles are on a upper-lower-case carousel...

To reproduce (IE7):

  • Insert smiley
  • Image properties -> add style "background:url (UPPERCASE)"
  • Image properties again -> style is changed to "BACKGROUND: url(UPPERCASE)" (not wrong yet, but still inconsistent)
  • Switch to source view; style is now "background:url('''uppercase)" (this is wrong)

If there were a <div> with a set background with uppercase characters, it would be trashed as a result of:

  • the operations above
  • directly when replacing <textarea>

Found to be also present in IE8, seemed it worked but it doesnt.
New test case:

<div id="container"><div style="background:url(someUppercaseUrl)"></div></div>

ckeditor() on container, then destroy(), someUppercaseUrl should preserve case (doesnt happen now)

FF, Opera and Safari seem unaffected

Looking at the patch, that was not my point:
The problem is that

The choice of style case is purely cosmetic (url vs URL), although it would be nice to preserve the one users input. However, urls ARE case-insensitive, they should be preserved exactly. After some research, case-sensitive components should be:

  • style:font-family (aliased style:font)
  • style:background-image (aliased style:background)
  • style:list-style-image (aliased style:list-style)
