Description Krinkle 2014-06-25 19:12:57 UTC
When the parser strips a /* comment */ from a style attribute it inserts a   in its place. This causes the stylesheet to be invalidated by the browser and the relevant styles are not applied when the page is renders.

Wikitext input:

<blockquote style="border: 1px solid #aaa /* foo */;"></blockquote>

Expected output:

<blockquote style="border: 1px solid #aaa ;"></blockquote>
<blockquote style="border: 1px solid #aaa;"></blockquote>

Actual output:

<blockquote style="border: 1px solid #aaa &#160;;"></blockquote>

A nbsp; is illegal in css in that position and results in a parse error by the browser, causing the 'border' rule in this case to not be applied.
