Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

When I analysed the CSS style sheets of some SE websites, I ran across some typos.

  • Stack Overflow (also meta):

    .suggested-edit .body-diffs .full-html-diff .gutter     /* Selector */
        max-width:10x;                                      /* Property */
                    ^ Replace `x` with `px`
  • TeX

    .answered-accepted .mini-counts AND .answered-accepted strong
        borer-bottom:1px solid #f2fcea;
           ^ Replace `borer-bottom` with `border-bottom`

I encountered these errors when I parsed the CSS using code beautifier, to check the possibility of overriding the TeX' stylesheet using Stylish, to be more comfortable. If you find other errors in other SE sites, feel free to post them as an answer.

PS. Do not add an answer about \9, valid CSS3 or vendor-specific properties, as the parser is like a human: Capable of committing mistakes.

Jigsaw W3C CSS validator results for Stack Overflow's stylesheet, CSS3 mode and vendor extensions only triggering warnings - guess how many errors left are the aforementioned hacks... – BoltClock's a Unicorn Nov 25 '11 at 21:50
@BoltClock'saUnicorn Are these bugs going to be fixed? Or is it too difficult to update the files? – Rob W Dec 29 '11 at 12:26
Not a clue... I'm not one of the developers :| I suppose you could drop a bounty to get some attention from them. – BoltClock's a Unicorn Dec 29 '11 at 14:53

The Stack Overflow stylesheet no longer has that typo, but I fixed up the TeX ones (and Wordpress).

Going live in the next build.

why the rush, it's not even three years since the report... (but +1) – user259867 Oct 6 '14 at 23:47
@CareBear Good point. We're really running the risk that folks will start to expect timely bug fixes around here. – Adam Lear Oct 6 '14 at 23:47
