Extra CSS @font-face losing font url

Hello,

In my Common Option --> Look and Feel --> Styling --> Extra CSS I'm using this block to add a font reference:

Code:
@font-face {
font-family: "Times New Roman"; 
font-weight: normal; 
font-style: normal; 
src: url(res: ///ebook/fonts/../../mnt/sdcard/fonts/Times-New-Roman.ttf);}

@font-face {
font-family: "Times New Roman"; 
font-weight: bold; 
font-style: normal; 
src: url(res:///ebook/fonts/../../mnt/sdcard/fonts/Times-New-Roman-Bold.ttf);}

@font-face {
font-family: "Times New Roman"; 
font-weight: normal;
font-style: italic; 
src:url(res:///ebook/fonts/../../mnt/sdcard/fonts/Times-New-Roman-Italic.ttf);}

@font-face {
font-family: "Times New Roman"; 
font-weight: bold; 
font-style: italic; 
src: url(res:///ebook/fonts/../../mnt/sdcard/fonts/Times-New-Roman-Bold-Italic.ttf);}
When I convert a file from epub to epub, one of the font-faces loses the "src: url" data.

The code looks like this:

Code:
@font-face {
font-family: "Times New Roman"; 
font-weight: normal; 
font-style: normal; }
I'm expecting to see this:

Code:
@font-face {
font-family: "Times New Roman"; 
font-weight: normal; 
font-style: normal; 
src: url(res: ///ebook/fonts/../../mnt/sdcard/fonts/Times-New-Roman.ttf);}
I'm not sure why my font-weight normal, font-style-normal @font-face is losing the url information on conversion?

I'd appreciate any and all help

Thanks,
Amalthia

Do you need the page_style.css file as an example or the file I'm converting as an example? From what I can tell this is happening with all epubs I convert.

I'll see if I can find a public domain ebook for an example if that's what you need.

Thanks,

Are you saying the problem only occurs for the first font-face shown in the first post of this thread?

If so I did notice that there is an added space in the url that does not appear in the other font-face definitions.

Yes, the problem is only happening with the first font-face.

I'll remove the space and see if that helps.

Thanks!

Removing the extra space made a difference! It's now fixed. Thanks for catching that!
