Detail

I've discovered that CSS styles that are indented with 3 spaces "disappear". Two spaces works.

Co-worker theorizes that "since three leading spaces are significant to TWiki as a potential bulleted or numbered list, I think itís anticipating the indentation as a list set-off and 'loses it' thereafter." It's certainly possible.

In any case, this code

<style>
 pre
{
   white-space: pre-wrap;       /* css-3 */
   word-wrap: break-word;       /* Internet Explorer 5.5+ */
}
</style>

shows up as

 pre {
 }
in the Firefox "Firebug" debugger. (And, therefore, the code inside the pre-block is absent and not used.)

Whereas this code

<style>
 pre
{
  white-space: pre-wrap;       /* css-3 */
  word-wrap: break-word;       /* Internet Explorer 5.5+ */
}
</style>
differing only in number of initial spaces, shows up as
 pre {
  white-space:pre-wrap;
 }

in Firebug.

Look at the raw HTML TWiki generates. I suspect that it creates a definition list.

Workaround: Put your style section in HTML-commented pre-tags such as:

<!-- <pre> -->
<style>
 pre
{
   white-space: pre-wrap;       /* css-3 */
   word-wrap: break-word;       /* Internet Explorer 5.5+ */
}
</style>
<!-- </pre> -->

I set this as "no action required" but we will update the docs to more explicit on how to embed CSS and JavaScript in TWiki pages.

TextFormattingRules and UsingHTML is now updated with better docs on using CSS and JavaScript. TWikirev:18407 and TWikirev:18408.
