From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.0rc3) Gecko/20020523 BuildID: 2002052306 In the page http://www.sebastian-bergmann.de/stuff/preface.html text elements like "Preface" are highlighted, as defined in "A:active, A:hover" (http://www.sebastian-bergmann.de/stuff/docbook.css) when the mouse cursor is over them. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Open http://www.sebastian-bergmann.de/stuff/preface.html 2. Move mouse cursor over "Preface". 3. "Preface" is not a link, but the "A:active, A:hover" entry from http://www.sebastian-bergmann.de/stuff/docbook.css is used and the text is highlighted. Actual Results: http://www.sebastian-bergmann.de/stuff/preface.jpg Expected Results: "Preface" should not be highlighted. This is also the way MSIE6 renders the page.
Futher information: The page validates. I guess the following is responsible: <h2 class="title"><a id="preface" /> Preface</h2> Looks like we are waiting for the end tag. Over to Styles. pi

The page is sent as text/html, but it contains XHTML, not HTML. Therefore this page is invalid. Note that even if that was not the case, a:active and a:hover should apply to all elements. Well, :hover definitely should. :active is covered by bug 65917.
The correct MIME type for XHTML documents is text/xml. Marking bug INVALID.
