CSSMin's url() value processing doesn't allow parentheses or quotes in the URL
Closed, ResolvedPublic


I have a cross-wiki @import in my personal common.js and common.css pages (on all WMF public wikis) – e.g. – of the form:

@import url('// (WMF)/global.css&action=raw&ctype=text/css');

Until recent changes unveiled this bug, this worked fine, but now the first parenthesis aborts the import (so it runs as "@import url('// (WMF"), which unsurprisingly 404s.

I can fix this for myself with a bot edit to 1600 pages (fun) to URL-encode the parentheses, but this regression should actually be fixed.

bzimport raised the priority of this task from to Low.Nov 22 2014, 2:22 AM
bzimport set Reference to bz58473.
bzimport added a subscriber: Unknown Object (MLST).

Not a regression, it never did, but previous that was not applied to @imports and thus no one ever noticed.

This is rather low-priority, given that normal people don't have parentheses in their names and don't have @import rules in their personal CSS.
