From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:0.9.5) Gecko/20011011 BuildID: 2001101117 When a link has the format <A HREF="/index.html"/> linktext </a> The "linktext" is not a link. However, <A HREF="/index.html"> linktext </a> works fine.The first example works fine in Communicator 4.77. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: Go to URL above or create a simple HTML document with: <HTML> <a href=".."/>This is a link.</a> </HTML>
This would require a large rearchitecting of the parser. Since <a href="foo" /> means <a href="foo"></a> we are parsing this correctly for XML documents and XHTML. In HTML this is an invalid construct that people seem to feel it is cool to use. Over to evangelism; Harish has explicitly said on multiple occasions that he will not be changing this behavior.
I'm adding some words on the summary line so this is easier to find (to reduce dups).
looks fixed to me.
You're right. I just checked it a week or two ago and it wasn't fixed so I sent another e-mail to webmaster. -Dan
