Does anyone else experience this problem? I've added styles to typography.css. And they nicely show up in the TinyMCE editor 'styles' dropdown.

In the dropdown list itself, the case is converted to lowercase and it applies the style name lowercase.

So a discrepancy will exist with any styles that have been written in camel case (or anything other than lowercase).

Eg. typography.css

.sloganText {
    font-size: 2.3em; 

In the TinyMCE dropdown, it appears as:


When applied to content via the editor....

<p class="slogantext">My SLogan</p>

Obviously, a solution is to rename styles to lowercase. But is this a bug that should be reported? Are are some naming conventions being enforced deliberately?

Appears to be a Chrome problem -

So your choice is to either run your CMS in FireFox or use lowercase class names.

I'd recommend lowercase/hyphenated class names. Seems to be best practice these days -
