CSS and long element names

Has anyone else run into an issue when using long (over 32 characters) element names with CSS?  It looks like the character limit carried over from IF. I couldn't figure out why my CSS rule wasn't hitting until I happened to look at the status window and saw that the element name was truncated. Once I truncated my selector, the rule worked fine.  I was over the limit by a single character.  I'm going to guess most people are using less verbose element names, so this won't be problem.

  • and on a more serious note: the 32 character limit is not so much CSS related but it is XML related.
    XPP does not support element names that are longer than 32 characters.
    (I just noticed that this limit is not mentioned in the SGML/XML reference manual, so I opened up a documentation issue for you)

    If you think this is a limiting thing for your environment, you might want to open up a ticket with SDL support so they can open up an RFE for you. You might also enter this enhancement in the SDL ideas page
