    • Hello,

      Thank you for providing this information about the issue. Based on the reduction https://jsfiddle.net/0dwwooce/ - the page sets the <base href="/"> which was actually previously ignored in some browsers. Please remove <base href="/"> (which shouldn’t have much effect either way) because document styles should resolve ids relative to document, while external ids would resolve to the stylesheet uri. Currently, we do not plan to release a fix for this problem. Please reopen this case if you can provide new information for us to consider.

      Best Wishes,
      The MS Edge Team
