From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:0.9.8) Gecko/20020204 BuildID: 2002020406 Some pages in the site are displayed only in part. Both IE and Opera show them completely so I think an error in the page sources is quite unlikely. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Go to http://www.winradio.net.au 2. Open the Product->Software or the Company page 3. Compare to what IE displays on those pages
A whole table full of information is not shown, which is strange.
confirming, http://www.winradio.net.au/home/software.htm cotains alot of invalid comment tags <!--- ---> which should be <!-- --> removing those makes mozilla render the page correctly
This like saying that, for example, /** and **/ can not be safely used in C instead of "classical" /* and */. It surely sounds a little bit silly to me! The standard says that the comments must be delimited by '<!--' and '-->', not '<!-- ' and ' -->'. So I consider the pages with problems are Ok! They respect the HTML standard and they should be properly displayed by Mozilla with no change at all!
well, w3 validator says its wrong ... http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.winradio.net.au&charset=%28detect+automatically%29&doctype=Inline specs are pretty obvious http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/intro/sgmltut.html#h-3.2.4
Than why all other browsers properly display the page? As a C/C++ programmer, the examples gave on the W3C page are irrelevant. They say that comments are delimited by "<!" immediately followed by "--". There is nothing to say that there should be "-- ". Also the comment closing sequence seems correct as there is no strange situation like the ones they suggest. You have the first pair giving "--" after the comment text and, after an extra '-' that is completely insignificant, the '>' that closes the comment. As I'm used to technical specifications and wrongly explained situations, the W3C standard practically says that the comments in those web-pages are Ok. And I've taken step by step the W3C description on the incriminated comments!
