Description User image Nisheeth Ranjan 1999-09-28 14:10:47 PDT
The code for CDATA Section, DOCTYPE, NamedNodeMap, Notation, Processing
Instruction objects is in the tree.  We need to start using it to create these
content objects and populate the DOM with them...

I'm currently scheduling this work for post beta.  If time permits, I'll try to
do this for beta.

Moving bugs out by one milestone...
Comment 3 User image Nisheeth Ranjan 2000-04-21 18:51:05 PDT
Updating summary.

We need to pass up entity and notation declarations from expat to the XML 
content sink.  Currently, only the doctype declaration is passed up.  

The sink, then, needs to create the doctype object and populate the 
"doctype.entities" and "doctype.notations" NamedNodeMaps with Entity and 
Notation nodes respectively.

Adding heikki and jst to the cc list to keep them in the loop.

We should try and get this in for beta 3.  Marking nsbeta3, and setting target 
milestone to M18...

Since this is necessary for DOM Level 1 compatibility, I'd like to see if in for 
beta 2. The fix itself is simple and low risk, but at this point we are 
incompabtible with IE5. Nominating nsbeta2.
Comment 8 User image Peter Trudelle 2000-06-16 14:11:05 PDT
nsbeta2+ until 6/22
Comment 9 User image Nisheeth Ranjan 2000-06-16 15:51:14 PDT
Vidur has the fix for this in his tree.  Re-assigning to him so that he can mark 
this fixed when he checks it in.

We now process the Doctype notification (the nsbeta2+ part, checked in on 
6/16/2000), but expat still doesn't pass us notations and entities. Removing the 
nsbeta2 designation and passing the bug back to Nisheeth. We should consider 
futuring this one. 
Comment 11 User image Nisheeth Ranjan 2000-06-23 16:27:16 PDT
Marking nsbeta3 for now...  This might not be difficult to do and this is a DOM 
1 compliance issue.  If it turns out that we are completely overloaded with beta 
3 stuff, we can consider futuring this.
Comment 12 User image Peter Trudelle 2000-08-08 15:42:08 PDT
...and that's how it turned out. nsbeta3-, ->future

We dropped support for those attributes.
