Because of the sensitivity of such data, I generated a detached PGP signature for the HTML file before uploading it to my ISP's Web server. On occasion, I save the page from the server back onto my PC and recheck it against the signature. With Mozilla 1.x, the check fails, indicating someone has hacked my keys. However, with Netscape 4.79, the check succeeds, indicating no such hack occurred. Apparently, the x0A (LF) at the end of each line of the ASCII HTML file on the UNIX server is not being converted to x0D0A (CR-LF) for an ASCII file on a PC. I am unsure from reading RFC 1945 whether this conversion is required; it is not prohibited by the RFC. Since the reverse conversion is performed when FTP is used to upload the file from a PC to a UNIX host, I would expect Mozilla to perform this conversion. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: See "Details". Actual Results: See "Details". Expected Results: The page should be translated between the conventions used in the Web server host and the conventions used in the client host (e.g., from UNIX to PC) without any other alterations. This problem also prevents the use of checksums, MD5 hashed message digests, and other forms of verification of file integrity when downloading or saving Web pages.
In many cases, such a conversion will corrupt data, so doing it is hardly an option unless you KNOW that the data involved is text data (you generally do not). In any case, there are existing bugs on this.
Reference comment #1: If there are already bugs on this, please indicate the numbers so that I can track them.
