Steps to reproduce

See this codepen

  1. Open Edge 25 to the codepen above.
  2. Scroll down and hover your mouse over the 3 lines of text. (a :hover css rule will be applied adding an underline)
  3. Note how the text-anchor setting (middle) seems to be lost and the text appears to jump to the left.
    We see other issues like this as well where we programatically change classes on SVG elements and they appear to misalign - but those are difficult to recreate in a simple demo page.
    All of this does not happen on a machine that still has Edge v20 installed.

    • A workaround is to duplicate the text-anchor assignment in the :hover css
      #myid:hover {
      text-decoration: underline;
      text-anchor: middle;
      But why is this necessary?

    • Still an issue on Anniversary Edition Windows 10.
