Steps to reproduce: -open 4.6; -go to any URL(http://www.cnndanmark.dk/); -save this Web page as an HTML file; -send mail with this file attached; -get it in 5.0; //now note: HTML tags appearing on the top of the page (it doesn't occur when the page is sent in-line, and you see it correctly when you just bring up the saved web page in the Browser window); -it happens when the file is sent as an attachement in 7/20/99 windows build
reassigning to rhp. If this isn't an attachment problem, maybe this should be reassigned to the layout team?
Hi Rick, I'm not sure to assign this to, but it looks like a parsing/layout problem. I will attach an HTML file that is the output from libmime's parsing operation. If you load this into 4.x or IE, it seems fine, but with Gecko, you get parts of HTML showing up in the display. - rhp
Rich -- The attachment appears identical to me in nav and in Gecko. Perhaps we have a related problem -- or it's possible that whatever was wrong is fixed. Would you mind resubmitting an attachment of a small html page (very small) in English so I can scan it more easily in my debugger?
I don't see HTML tags showing up under 5.0, but there seem to be some problems with ALT text showing up where it should not. 1. When you attach a locally saved page of the above URL, none of the links to image files (both .gif and .jpg) can be recovered since you don't get the reference links in the mail such as: Content-Base: "http://www.cnndanmark.dk/" Content-Location: "http://www.cnndanmark.dk/" which you would get if you send a page directly from a location. Since almost all images are defined relative to the above base location, you can locate images without the reference link. 2. Under 4.x, you don't see any ALT text displayed unless there is specific text defined in "ALT=name_of_image". 3. Under 5.0, you actually see ALT text material even if ALT is not defined at all. For example, you will see this name "forside_header_sidstenyt" near the top of the page. This is a name of a gif file without the extention, .gif, taken from this line: <IMG SRC=3D"/pics/global/forside_header_sidstenyt.gif" WIDTH=3D"86" = HEIGHT=3D"19" BORDER=3D"0"> There are a bunch of other image names showing up on this page under 5.0 when they cannot be located. For example, "552284" for "552284.jpg", etc. None of these are defined as ALT texts and so we have to assume that this is a bug. By the way, I also see some problems with a live page message. For example, I see the numbers 552284 and 552294. They are supposed to be pictures. I can't tell from the source where 552294 comes from but 552284 comes from this link. http://www.cnndanmark.dk/images/recent/220699/552284.jpg Under 4.6, this image is actually loaded in the atatchment of a live page. In any case, 5.0 should not be displaying alternate text unless it is defined in the document. I observe only these kinds of problems on the locally-attached pages and to a limited extent in live page attachments. I don't see other problems with the problem message in question.
I should mention that my observations are based on Windows build: 1999072108.
The alttext issue is a known bug assigned to kipp. Rather than overload this bug for that purpose, I'd be greatful if you would close this bug if you can't reproduce it either. Then lets open a new one which we can mark as a dup (but useful for testing) and assign to Kipp.
I talked briefly to marina today about her original problem. She seemed to agree that what she had reported is the alt text probelm I described above. Will confirm on Monday with marina and follow your suggestions on opening a new one.
I'm going to send this over to marina. Please confirm or disconfirm what has been discussed above.
What i was seeing were HTML source code strings or if we language it differently- alt.text. In case there is a bug already entered for this it should be dup.
Peter, pls look into this and reassign/open a new bug as needed. Thanks.
Confirmed this problem is the Alt Text problem. I was able to reproduce the problem on the Win32 1999-08-17-09-m9 build and Linux 1999-08-17-08-m9 build. Alt text is appearing next to the image. I spoke with Marina to confirm her bug description. She confirmed that she was seeing alt text. Updating bug title: Old title - HTML tags appear in the mail attachement New title - Alt text displays even after image has been rendered Marking this bug as duplicate of bug 11011 assigned to kipp. /Peter Mail QA *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 11011 ***
