I don't get this bug. It's a weird thing. I can't reproduce it in data: URI test cases. But anyway, nothing to do with the DOM.
Yes, I was unsure if it was a DOM issue or not. What would you classify this as so I can reassign it, and who to reassign to?
Any chance of providing a testcase showing the problem? That would help a lot...
Kiril: don't worry, I reasigned it (HTML: Parser). bz: I tried making one for a while, but couldn't work out what the problem was. Someone needs to take the page returned by the script at the URL, and minimise it.
Yes, the test URL would be the place to see it. http://mpn.illearth.net/html/submit.php Keep the HTML simple as it will be stripped by the sanitizer if the tag is not allowed. The HTML is generally a mess, glad to say the majority of it is not mine. :) Some additional details that might help. Input is HTML sanitized, then control returns, line feeds, tabs, spaces, and ' ' ( in that order ) are converted to reference values to retain formatting when the content is brought back into the textarea for editing and for easy formatting replacements on HTML output. To fix the problem I dumped the space conversion to reference value and so far it seems to have no affect on formatting. This can be seen on http://www.myphpnuke.com/submit.php. The output you would be interested in is around line 203 of the source output. <TEXTAREA class="textbox" wrap="virtual" cols="70" rows="18" name="story"><br /><br /><br /></TEXTAREA>
hixie, you removed the url from the URL field when you reassigned. Hence my question in comment 3. The problem, as usual, is sticking of unescaped tags in the <textarea>. Just escaping the '<' at the beginning of the tag name fixed this bug. This is a duplicate of the other issues with unescaped tag stuff in textarea, I think....
Oops, sorry about that. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 166866 ***
