Steps to reproduce

We used to use the following css style to apply a custom cursor (with retina fallback). This no longer functions in the latest version of edge (18).

    cursor: url('cursor.cur'), auto;
    cursor: url('cursor.png') 16 16, auto;
    cursor: -webkit-image-set(url('cursor.png') 1x, url('/cursor_high.png') 2x) 16 16, crosshair;

The 2nd is being incorrectly parsed by the browser, resulting in the applied style being:

cursor: url(‘cursor.cur’), auto;
cursor: auto;
cursor: -webkit-image-set(url(‘cursor.png’) 1x, url(‘/cursor_high.png’) 2x) 16 16, crosshair;

where the last line has the red underlining (as in has an incorrect value). It looks like it is parsing the 2nd line incorrectly, setting the cursor back to auto.
