DefaultWysiwygConverter: incorrect style conversion

I'm using the DefaultWysiwygConverter to convert HTML into WikiMarkup. Every now and then I find small bugs... is this the correct place to report them?

Here's an example bug. Consider this HTML fragment:

<span style="color: rgb(255, 0, 0);"><em>Where?</em></span>

The DefaultWysiwygConverter.convertXHtmlToWikiMarkup() method converts this to the following WikiMarkup:


In JIRA, this markup does not appear in the correct color, but simply as grey. In our JIRA (v6.4.11), the underscores must be outside of the color elements for a correct display of italic and colored text.

By the way, I'm using the atlassian-renderer-8.0.5 (groupId=com.atlassian.renderer)... is there maybe a newer version of it available?


This conversion problem seems to affect only text inside of Xray Test steps!

Hi Dominik,

this is in fact a bug from Xray. This bug is already registered and is expected to be fixed in the next release (release 2.0.6).

Please for any Xray related issues, you can also contact our support team leaving a ticket at


Kind regards,

Xavier Fernandes.

Thanks for the info!
