Sometimes its useful to use PHP to generate stylesheets. Unfortunately, it's not possible to pass parameters to the stylesheets because wp_register_style gets confused. For example:

wp_register_style('sb_style', get_option('siteurl').'?sermon-browser-style', false, $version);


rather than

The bug is presumably in WP_Styles

This is not a bug, but the way that the function is intended to work. The & character by itself is an illegal entity in XHTML. So & is normally replaced with & however & is a correct html entity for the &.

This was discussed several months ago on the wp-hackers list in this thread:

In short it was proven that the function is acting as expected and there are no bad side effects from the way that it does things. The thread actually refers to wp_enqueue_script but it is the same principal in the end.

my 2 cents: wp_register_style() does not return a value. The reporter must refrain to some other function then. As sivel already stated that might be obvious anyway. +1 for invalid.

Please always add the context(s) of in- and output in your reports. Thanks.
