BB Torch 9860 OS 7 crashes parsing CSS Content Property in HTML Email

Hello all,


I am trying to apply a responsive design to HTML emails and I am currently having problems with it rendering on this device. It seems to be crashing on the CSS Content Property for example: 


.account:before {
  content: url("path to image"); /*Blows up with just text as well*/

Has anyone else experience this, or know of a work around? It seems to render (not blow up) on differnent berries, just not this version Smiley Sad Does anyone have any suggestions? Is there a place where i can check known bugs?

I've experienced the same. If the mail's style contains a content: url(), than the app will immediately crash after opening that mail.


Did not found any workarounds. Does anybody know a media query that is skipped by ONLY BlackBerrys?


Or another way to replace images for BlackBerry?
