Allow sanitized-CSS to use pointer-events


@Pseudo Classes: I haven't looked into this, but this might be intentional, as it might not be desirable to fake certain pointer events and it might be used in situations of phising or something. Please make a better Problem description of where and how you would use this pointer-events (examples), so that the usefulness and risk can be eveluated. —TheDJ (talkcontribs) 11:01, 20 November 2020 (UTC)[reply]
@TheDJ: Sorry, I’m not sure I understand. Why pointer-events property might be abused? Pseudo Classes (talk) 02:49, 21 November 2020 (UTC)[reply]
K. checked. the reason why pointer-events is not supported, is because it is CSS that is part of the SVG2 module which is not included in the sanitizer right now. It will also be added to the upcoming CSS level 4, but the sanitizer only supports Level 3. —TheDJ (talkcontribs) 12:21, 21 November 2020 (UTC)[reply]
The pointer-events CSS property sets under what circumstances (if any) a particular graphic element can become the target of pointer events. If set to none, the cursor will not change.
