TWitter ID support, i.e.

URL pattern of "@twitter_ID" style links. Use %ID% for the Twitter ID. An empty string disables autolinking.
{Links}{TwitterUrlPattern} [ /http://twitter.com/%ID% ]

interferes with style syntax, i.e

<style type="text/css" media="all">
@import url("/pub/Main/WaterMark/archiveWM.css");

@import is mis-recognized as a Twitter ID and the string is mangled into a Twitter href.

Oops, that is not good.

As a workaround write !@... or <nop>@... - the prefix is removed at the end of the rendering process.

Thanks for the workaround.

(It took me a while and eventual staring at the source code to figure out why this simply wasn't working. Because it was inside <style> tags, there was nothing obvious in View mode!
