  • Hi,

    I loaded the sample on Chrome and Edge running on 14393.  I uploaded the screen capture.  Can you verify that this is reproducing the issue that you are reporting?

    Thank you for the repro example.

  • Hi,

    I just wanted to let you know that it appears this issue has been fixed in recent public releases, e.g. the Creators Update.

    Let us know if you believe this is not the case.

    Appreciate this submission and the support,

  • Sorry for the delayed reply (I forgot to “watch” the issue after filing via Twitter).

    I would not consider Chrome a reference – they are pretty ugly, too. Firefox is much better.

    In Edge, the rendering really depends on the browser zoom level, screen resolution, and the exact layout of individual lines of text on the screen.

    Screenshot in Microsoft EdgeHTML 15.15063, two different windows with the same code, just different browser zoom levels:

    The underlined links all appear to be different colors, from dark navy to light blue to indistinguishable from the background medium blue.
