Random property values

P: n/a
Hi everyone,

Has anyone ever had problems with random CSS properties being assigned?
The other day I created a span, coloured it red, and for some reason
the 'text-decoration: captilization' property was set!!! I got aroudn
this by manually setting that property to none. I do not use this value
for this property ANYWHERE in my style sheet!

Another similar problem has cropped up. On a particular member's
computer the background for text inputs have become yellow!!? We don't
set the background of these inputs, and it is fine on everyone else's
computer. The backgrounds are yellow in BOTH IE and FF!

Is this a documented bug?

Prove it :-)

You probably have the Google toolbar installed in both IE and FF then.
Is this a documented bug?
No, it's a documented feature of the Google toolbar.

CSS is contained in text files. What you are saying implies that the
text in your file spontaneously changed to something else. Is that true?

Either that, or you're defining your CSS properties using some
application, like Dreamweaver or Visual Studio or something, the
workings of which are transparent. It's impossible to answer your
question without knowing what you're doing.

Google toolbar, probably. It highlights fields it guesses are name,
address, and so on that it can fill in for you if you want to use its
Autofill feature.

The first question I'd ask is: What program are using to create/edit
the page? If it's a WYSIWYG editor I'd suspect that.

Could be the user is over-riding the site CSS with a personal style sheet

Sorry guys, my bad. Another developer had sneaked a 'capitalize'
property into it without me noticing it :(.

And the other problem was the toolbar being installed, so that explains
that :)

Thanks for the help guys
