Frontmatter cssclass property is not applied to popovers for links targeting a callout

Steps to reproduce

  • Add a note with a cssclass frontmatter property.
    • Add a callout in the same note and give the callout a block identifier
  • In a separate note, add a link to the callout using the block identifier
  • Hover over the link to make the popover appear
    • Inspect the HTML for the popover to see that the CSS class from the frontmatter of the note the callout is from is not added to the popover

Did you follow the troubleshooting guide?


Expected result

A popover to a callout should include any CSS classes from the callout’s note’s frontmatter.

Actual result

The CSS classes from the cssclass frontmatter property are not applied to the popover.

Additional information

The CSS classes from cssclass are correctly applied to popover’s for links to notes or headings. They only seem to be missing for links to callouts.
