Possible broken CSS/

In this thread, and only this thread, for the past couple of days I am seeing broken CSS (I think).

The page layout appears close to normal, but the following CSS line is visible across the top of the page...

/** * vBulletin 3.8.8 Beta 1 CSS * Style: 'LQ Style - child of default'; Style ID: 7 */ @import url("clientscript/vbulletin_css/style-7eb8640c-00007.css");

... and there are no background colors anywhere, all white.

This is with Firefox 25.0.1, only plugin is Flashblock and a common theme.

I can post or email a screenshot if that might help.

The page is not cached and forced reloading does not help.

Not an HTML guru - but on closer look it appears that the <meta...> immediately before the <style...> is broken.

Sorry for the multiple posts, I see the cause of the problem now...

The following as captured with wget (therefore not a browser issue):

<meta name="description" content="I am trying to use a replaceable parameter so I can just type for example. I guess I am not using it correctly. find / -name \<meta name="description" content=" />

<!-- CSS Stylesheet -->
<style type="text/css" id="vbulletin_css">
* vBulletin 3.8.8 Beta 1 CSS
* Style: 'LQ Style - child of default'; Style ID: 7
@import url("");
... the red text is from the way the forum processing handles the OPs text which included a forward-slash and a dollar-signed-number, probably mishandled by regular expression processing, resulting in a missing double-quote and closing bracket (looks like ignores to end of line probably).

If so, this will be seen again in a tech forum I am sure!

Thanks for the bug report. I've fixed it in this particular case and we'll roll out a bug fix moving forward.
