Seems to be related to the Inline Styles, i.e. when the text/html part of the template contains the likes of: <body background="cid:email@example.com" style="margin-top: 150px; margin-left: 50px; background-repeat: no-repeat;"> Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. compose a message 2. Use Format -> Page Colours and Background to choose a background image. 3 click OK and then save the file as a template. This template will work fine. However if you add some inline attributes to the HTML <BODY> then it stops working. 1. take then message into the composer (double click on the template) 2, Use Format -> Page Colours and Background to bring up the dialogue box 3 Click on "Advanced Edit .." 4. Select the "Inline Style" tab 5. In the Property box enter Background-repeat 6. In the Value box enter no-repeat 7. click OK and then OK in the Page Colours ... window. 8. Save the file as a template. 9. click on the new template to preview - it looks OK 10. double-click on the template to use it in a new message - the backgrond is gone. Actual Results: background no longer is present in new message Expected Results: retained the background image and multipart/related content.

This patch does a couple things to fix the problem. The code where we were parsing attribute name and value pairs in the body tag was broken for the following case: style="some style stuff" LINERETURN link="some link value" if a line return came right after an attribute value, we failed to detect that attribute value. I simplified the logic in this routine to make it handle this case. I also removed an obsolete reference to the background propety and changed it to style because composer only sets a background image as an inline style property and not a background attribute anymore. This is a required part of the fix.

Does this patch also solves the problems mentioned in the two dupes? see Bug 206064 and Bug 191799. The latter is especially important for BiDi users, as it provides the only reasonably convenient solution for RTL emails (through HTML templates). Prog.
yes it should solve both of those dups.
Interesting conclusion to the cause. There was a line break in the test post I had done a few weeks ago. <body text="#000000" bgcolor="#ffcccc" background="cid:firstname.lastname@example.org" style="margin-top:32px; margin-right:32px; margin-left:32px; border-width:8px; border-color: red white blue green; border-style:groove; padding:12;"> This was done with the 20030611 build before the activation of inline backgrounds as you can see from the background= attribute. The template is still in my folder for reuse when this bug fix makes it to your next nightly.

Has this patch been checked in? it doesn't seem to work here, using today's nightly: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.5b) Gecko/20030818 Under HTML Attributes, I've added dir="rtl" and saved a template. I then closed Mozilla and launched it again to test the template. Result: the attribute was not saved. Prog.
that does not look like an inline style attribute that you are setting.
sice dir is a direct attribute on body & not an inline body style which is what i fixed in this bug, we could come up with a special case for dir. Can you file a new bug on me for that?
Is this problem back? See bug 220708.
was the fix implemented in thunderbird 0.2 or .3 rc ? i could never get templates to work with thunderbird official releases and nightly releases

Can you file > a new bug on me for that? Thanks a lot for this suggestion, but the problem no longer appears with either Mozilla Mail&News 1.6b nor with Thundernbird 0.4. Unfortunately, the templates are still not too useful for RTL users, due mostly to another issue, Bug 136502, which deals with Mozilla wrongly down-converting HTML emails to plain text. Scott, Could you please confirm this 20-month-old bug? Thanks again, Prog.
