From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 Galeon/1.0.3 (X11; Linux i586; U;) Gecko/20020211 BuildID: 2002021422 Problem is short: write down such testing file: <html> <head><title>testing plaintext problem</title></head> <body> some text <p comment="remove this for test"> <plaintext> plaintext lines of text data </plaintext> normal text below plaintext in the same paragraph </p comment="remove this for test"> normal text below plaintext <p>normal text in paragraph</p> </body> </html> 1. Problem is that text inside the same paragraph (<p>) as <plaintext> after </plaintext> is also rendered using font setting as for plaintext above ! almost as if it were INSIDE <plaintext> tag. 2. It can be even worse, because if You use <plaintext> NOT iside paragraph <p> (remove items marked "remove for test") all below content of html file will be rendered this way. If sth. was not clear - contact me. HTH Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: just use file content I wrote above
Parser. We don't close out the <plaintext> properly...

As a note, NS4 shows everything after the <plaintext>, going right through </plaintext> and all the other block closures.....
