Details

Open a view-source window and try Search->Find on this page.  An assertion is
thrown in nsTestServices because the document appears to have more than one
<BODY> element.  I presume that it just fails to work in a release build
(rather than throwing me into the debugger).

It could be that the parser code that generates the html for view-source is
generating extra body elements, but I don't know.  Something funky is going on
but it's probably best to investigate from the text-services point of view.
using the 1999111108 build on win95 -- I do not get an assert. Sujay, can you
try this on an NT using todays build?
Beth and Kathy,got your request to verify this one and try it out on
today's builds...I'm waiting for a working build...I'm on top of it..
I tried this out on both 98 and NT latest build...I don't get an assertion.
It will only assert in debug builds, perhaps (I'm not sure exactly which form of
assert macro is being used).

Summary: "Search->Find on this page" doesn't work in view-source mode → "Search->Find on this page" doesn't work in View-Source mode
True of the MICROSOFT WINDOWS 98 1999122708 build - the Find function is
inoperative, but causes *no* crash. Why is this report assigned to the Editor?
It's assigned to the editor because the browser find functionality uses the
editor's nsITextServices interfaces for searching.
