Spurious line break in first ordered list line to contain a link/anchor
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7b) Gecko/20040421 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7b) Gecko/20040421 In the first ordered list on the page, http://www.rotted.com/fs8/race/doc/install.html#1, notice that Mozilla inserts a line break between the unlinked and linked text. I've experimented and found that it adds the spurious line break always right before the first link in the ordered list, be it in the first item or further down. Subsequent items in the list behave as expected as you can see. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Create an ordered list. 2. In two of the list items, include a hyperlinked word. Actual Results: The first occurance of a linked word will have an unintended line break just before the link. Expected Results: Only break lines between list items or other block delimitters.
The markup is: <a name="whatever"> <ul> <li> Text <a href="something"> More text </a> </li> </ul> Now this is not valid HTML, since an <a> element may not contain another <a> element (and may not contain <ul> either). So the parser fixes it up to: <ul> <a name="whatever"> <li> Text </li> </a> <a href="something"> More text </a> </ul> See where the linebreak is coming from? This is already filed...
this also occurs with the xhtml format: <a name="whatever" />
This also resets the font size (and probably other things) at the point of the line break. See, for instance: http://www.sniggle.net/Experiment/index.php?entry=19Aug04
And note that the page: http://www.sniggle.net/Experiment/index.php?entry=19Aug04 Is valid xhtml, without <a&rt; elements embedded in other <a&rt; elements.

You've marked this bug as a duplicate of a bug marked "RESOLVED INVALID" - but this bug is NOT resolved nor is it invalid (it still exists in current versions of Mozilla/Firefox, and it happens even when displaying a page that uses valid XHTML/CSS). I recommend either reopening this bug, or reopening Bug 167467.
