Description

19 years ago
This page crashes when minimized using Jan. 1 build of viewer.exe on win95. The
first letter of some of the sentences are also separated from the rest of the
sentence.

Obtained from mozilla-layout newsgroup (posted 12/30/98).

Apologies if this is assigned to the wrong person, Kipp, haven't learned who
owns the different components. Please re-assign if you're the wrong person for
this bug.

The layout mistakes on the page are the result of bad html being handled poorly
by the parser. Here is a reduced test case that demonstrates the problem (note
the missing </font> tag).

<HTML>
<HEAD><TITLE>The Nest's Main Page</TITLE>
</HEAD>
<BODY bgcolor=darkgrey><br>
  <center>
   <font color="blue">
    Text
  </CENTER>
  <font color="red">more</font>
  <font color="green">text </font>
</BODY>
</HTML>

Ok -- the parser bug is fixed, but there's still something interesting going on.
If you view this page in ie or nav, the background is a sickening reddish/purple
color and not darkgrey as the body specifies. We show darkgrey, which is great,
but since it's different I thought I'd pass it by you.

Cool. There were some problems in Nav's handling of named colors (most notably
they were inconsistent in their use of grAy vs grEy). I fixed this a while back.
If you change the color to "darkgray" it works in Nav too.
We're right, they're wrong.
