Description Tisza Gergő 2008-04-08 09:47:47 UTC
Images with a width containing a decimal dot are parsed incorrectly, width the dot being disregarded (so that [[Image:Foo|3.25px]] will be 325 pixel wide). See for example:

Using fractions in image sizes does not make much sense, nevertheless it is used by a number of people (especially in signatures), and when a lot of images suddenly increase by one or two orders of magnitude, the result is not pretty. (Note also that CSS does allow for such sizes: )
Comment 1 Tisza Gergő 2008-04-08 12:23:42 UTC
Correction: it does not only disregard the decimal dot, but the whole width parameter. The image appears at its original size.
Comment 2 Brion Vibber 2008-04-09 20:22:57 UTC
Well, that'd be because it's invalid input -- now that we have improved the input validation, it's rejected.

We could perhaps allow them; they'd still get rounded off of course.
