CSS Bug:Abuse of <sup> and <big> can escape post box


(Apparently Archetype) #1

Repeated application of <sup> and <big> can be used to cause content to appear outside of the post box

Example: This was in wrong place.

Example: <sup><big><sup><big><sup><big><sup><big><sup><big><sup><big><sup><big><sup><big><sup><big><sup><big><sup><big>This was in wrong place.

I don’t know that we entirely care about this… abuse can be classified as “don’t use standard formatting to do annoying things”.

Under penalty of suspension, etc.

Not for this report, I mean if people were doing this just to be annoying all the time.
