There have been some Bugs in Chrome (Webkit) with automatic inserted <span> tags which are already solved, but here is another one. Following simple scenario:

rte.css (RTE.default.contentCSS) with the only line: body { line-height: 1.4; }

Now insert one paragraph with text in the RTE field. Somewhere in the text press enter so there a two paragraphs afterwards. Leave the cursor on its position (beginning of second paragraph) and press backspace. In Chrome there is now a <span class="line-height: 1.4"> at the position where you pressed enter.

I figured out that this only happens if the line-height is set with a relative value (i.e. "1.4", "140%", "1.4em"). This bug does not occur if the value is in px-format (i.e. "14px").

Tested with TYPO3 CMS 6.2.12

I tried to reproduce this one with TYPO3 7.6.21 and Chrome 64bit 60.0.3112.113, without luck.

I guess it is safe to close this for now (no activity since a lot of time and support for TYPO3 6.2.x ended - except for ELTS plans); if you think that this is the wrong decision or experience the issue again or have more information about how to reproduce it, then please reopein it or open a new issue with a reference to this one.

Thank you.
