Bug ID: 63233
Summary: Using <section> prevents from inheriting CSS
OS: Mac OS X 10.8
Component: User preferences
Web browser: ---
Mobile Platform: ---
In includes/templates/Usercreate.php, there is a part that reads:
<?php $this->html( 'header' ); ?>
For some reason, the content put between the <section></section> tags does not
inherit the CSS from its parents, with ugly consequences. For instance, when
the ConfirmEdit extension is activated, and QuestyCaptcha is used, an input
field is inserted between the <section></section> tags, which doesn't inherit
CSS and thus looks different from the rest of the fields.
I've seen this bug in Chrome 33, Firefox 25 and Safari 6 (screens attached).
This bug is probably not due to MediaWiki, but a short Google search didn't
suggest that it's a browser issue either.
So anyway, rather than complicating ourselves too much, I suggest to simply
change the section tags for divs.
