Summary0002383: Website displaying without CSS
DescriptionDigital Spy is loading with no stylesheet.
Steps To ReproduceVisit
Additional InformationI can't see any mention of css files beyond the default NetSurf ones in the log. I know when they changed their site it went to a heavily Javascripted design, so it wouldn't surprise me if it is trying to do something clever we don't support yet.

A quick glance at the code reveals it's using "Modernizr" to create the stylesheets using Javascript.
TagsNo tags attached.

the site uses the following script to insert its css with javascript.

var s, el;

s = document.createElement('link');
s.rel = "stylesheet";
s.href = '//' + ( ? '-mobile.css' : '.css' );
el = document.getElementById('write-styles');

document.getElementsByTagName("head")[0].insertBefore( s, el );

This is using a numeric indexing into the html collection returned by document.getElementsByTagName("head") which is daft (document.head would be faster)

Sadly until we do ES6 proxy support for collections this won't work.

In addition, the Modernizr stuff looks like CSSOM
