Description

17 years ago
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.0) Gecko/20020606
BuildID:    20020606

Mozilla doesn't seem to like the color blue. I have a XML document formatter
that colorizes the different parts of the XML, and produces HTML output for the
XML. 

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open attached file using Mozilla 0.99->1.0 (haven't tried other releases).
2. Scroll down a bit.


Actual Results:  Mozilla respects the colors for a while, but some time in the
document stops respecting <font color=blue>. It still respects <font
color=black> and <font color=green>, though.

Expected Results:  It should keep respecting <font color=blue> ;-)

Works fine in both Netscape (4.78) and Internet Explorer (5.00).

try fixing the html source.. (check the w3.org validator for a nice little list
of errors, because of missing </b> tags..)
Due to the bad markup in the test case the document tree becomed unusually deep.
I guess the parser refuses to make it deeper at some point and applies a fixup
of some kind.

I think this one is INVALID, but I'm sending this over to parser for an
authorative decision.

OK, I've verified that it works fine when the HTML is correct (with closing
</b>). But I still think it's strange that it only stops reacting to the
'color=blue', while the 'color=green' still works.

I agree with Jonas.  The fact that green is still having no problems displaying
is strange indeed.  Can this limitation in the parser be exploited in a legimate
fashion?
