 When editing a passage, the monospace font uses the normal font's font size instead of its own. When editing a passage, the monospace font uses the normal font's font size instead of its own.

 +=====HTML tables=====
 +
 +Putting HTML tables in passages is currently bugged - when a <tr> is created, the browser automatically wraps it in a <​tbody>​ tag, and then puts the <​tr>'​s child code into the <​tbody>​ instead of the <tr>.
 +
 +== Recommendation ==
 +
 +Use the TiddlyWiki table [[syntax]] instead of HTML.
 +
 +===== Importing from HTML =====
 +
 +The "​import from HTML" feature sometimes reads passages incorrectly,​ creating correctly-named and tagged passages with no text.
 +
 +===== Jonah scrolling in IE 8 =====
 +
 +The automatic scrolling in Jonah behaves incorrectly in IE 8.
 +
 +===== Accessing properties of variables =====
 +
 +If a variable has object properties accessed through dot notation (such as an array with .length or .push) then the property will be incorrectly initialised to 0, making it inaccessible.
 +
 +== Makeshift patch ==
 +
 +Access the property through index notation (for instance, $array["​push"​]() instead of the $array.push() notation) until the bug is fixed.

 +
 +===== <<​nobr>>​ and multi-line macros =====
 +
 +If a macro tag spans multiple lines (such as one declaring an object or array literal), and is inside a <<​nobr>>,​ the newlines will be converted to zero-width spaces, which are **not** considered whitespace in Javascript, and thus cause an error.

-This macro'​s absence is not actually a bug. <<​textinput>>,​ a macro that was added in the Twine 1.3.6 alpha, was removed from the Twine codebase by its author, as it was intended primarily for testing and was never meant for actual end-use. (In Twine 1.4.1, it may be possible to use raw HTML <​input>​ tags to replicate the original functionality of <<​textinput>>,​ with the advantage of allowing more input types than just text boxes.)+This macro'​s absence is not actually a bug. <<​textinput>>,​ a macro that was added in the Twine 1.3.6 alpha, was removed from the Twine codebase by its author, as it was intended primarily for testing and was never meant for actual end-use. (In Twine 1.4.1, it may return by popular demand.)

 If the [[StorySettings]] option "​undo"​ is off, then <<​back>>​ may cause [[link]] [[variable]]s in preceding passages to be forgotten or incorrect. If the [[StorySettings]] option "​undo"​ is off, then <<​back>>​ may cause [[link]] [[variable]]s in preceding passages to be forgotten or incorrect.
  
 +===== visited() and similar passage names =====
  
 +The visited() [[function]] will incorrectly consider you having visited a passage if, in the past, you visited another passage whose name is a substring of the passage. (For example, visited("​Next 2") would incorrectly be 1 if you previously visited a passage titled "​Next"​.)
  
 ===== a:link CSS selector ===== ===== a:link CSS selector =====
  
-In Twine 1.4, the "​href"​ attribute was removed from internal links, because it has no purpose (except to clue the especially canny player into the fact that the link is specifically an internal link, which may "tip the hand" of certain authors ​unwillingly). However, this inadvertently means that the "​a:​link"​ CSS selector [[http://​www.ashtonraze.com/?​p=387|promoted by Ashton Raze]] no longer selects internal links (since "​a:​link"​ is a synonym for "​a[href]"​).+In Twine 1.4, the "​href"​ attribute was removed from internal links, because it has no purpose (except to unwittingly ​clue the especially canny player into the fact that the link is //specifically// an internal link, by the fact that hrefs are revealed by hovering over links - which may "tip the hand" of certain authors ​who, for instance, may try to disguise a macro link as an internal link).

This selector has the advantage of not selecting links outside of the passage (for instance, in the Sugarcane sidebar).
