I have added your report to the open bugs list (CSS012).
I generally don'y work on CSS support in Amaya, so I don't know if some progress have been made on this problem. I guess Irene will give you some update next week.

I guess your report has been overlooked in the pre- and post-release 'effervescence' (the 9.4 and 8.8.4 versions have been published on February 10th).

Can you point us such reports.

Reports are always helpful to fix some bugs and to improve the tool, but maybe some of them are sometimes 'forgotten'. Don't hesitate to contact us if you don't get any response after some days.
