Description

16 years ago
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.0rc2)
Gecko/20020510
BuildID:    2002051006

I use HTML format for composing mails and text format for sending. Sometimes the
formatting is really messed up. It should reflect as close as possible what is
reflected in the HTML format.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Make sure that "Compose Messages in HTML" is selected for the account you are
trying to send the mail from.
2. Compose a New Message to yourself and enter the text formatted as show in the
figure mozCompose.jpg.
3. Select the format for the Sent mail to be plain text.
4. Send the mail and check the mail you receive.

Actual Results:  The entries in the table were all aligned in independent lines
one after the other (as seen in figure mozSent.jpg).

Expected Results:  The entries in the table should be as rendered onscreen as is
done by Netscape 4.x (as seen in nsSent.jpg).

I think the bug would also occur if I tried saving an HTML file As Plain Text,
though I haven't tried it.

IMO, the priority should be major since the default for Mozilla is to compose
messages in HTML and send out messages in plain text. Hence anyone doing a bit
fancy composing using tables would encounter the bug.

Akkana--is there another bug on this issue?  Should this bug go to Tanu?

There is a bug about implementing real table support for html->plaintext, in the
browser dom->text component.
