Bug-ish: Custom CSS using fonts with the word 'script' in

Howdy, adding a font-family to the custom CSS with the word 'script' in e.g. 'Dancing Script'  - causes a 'HTML not allowed' type message.

    Yeah, this is, at this time, a "feature".  OP does not like the letters "s c r i p t" anywhere in the CSS, including in selectors for its own classes.

    There are workarounds for the selectors, but I don't know of any for fonts.

    Hopefully if enough people speak up a fix will be moved up the priority list, but I know that they are concerned about accidentally allowing malicious scripting to be introduced.

    @ragnarhawk has it.  I don't have a good answer on how to get around it for this scenario though.

    No promises on a fix, but @jodie, can you post a snippet of css that has the font-family in it so I can make sure I'm playing around with the right scenario?

    I could see this issue cropping up most often when dealing with fonts. The number of fonts that include the word "script" is remarkable. Almost as prevalent as "serif".

    @thaen, if you could also figure out how to white list "description" in selectors, that would resolve the problems with class and ID selectors

    As you mentioned above, I realize "No promises", but it would be nice

    @gastoff, great point!

    @ragnarhawk, also a great point.  Can you post an example of something that "should" work but doesn't, so I can make sure I'm solving the problem you want solved?

    Yeah if we can get 90% of cases handled with these specific tightly controlled exceptions, that'd be awesome.

    Yeah, fully understand that security trumps conveience any day. And it's not a priority I just found similar fonts with different names.

    .handWrittenNote {

     font-family: 'Dancing Script', cursive;

    }

    Hi @thaen,

    This is the css that I suggested that someone use:

     body.character-show .main-content .bio, body.character-show .tagline+div .content {background-color:#F5F5F510;}

    because this:

    body.character-show .main-content .bio, body.character-show .description .content {background-color:#F5F5F510;}

    is rejected for having "script" in it
