HR tag is rendered too large when SIZE specified as a decimal (less than 1
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.1) Gecko/20040707 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.1) Gecko/20040707 This has to do with the way Mozilla handles an improperly-written HR tag. Technically, the page in question should be fixed, but the way Mozilla handles the bug is a bug itself. (This may be a "quirks mode" issue?) According to the HTML spec, the size of an HR tag should be specified in pixels. However, if an HR tag is improperly specified as a decimal less than one (as though one could have a horizontal rule a half-pixel in size), Mozilla ignores the decimal point. Example: <hr size=.500> Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Create a new HTML file 2. Type this code: <hr size=.500> 3. Save 4. View the results in the browser Actual Results: The HR tag was rendered incorrectly. Expected Results: Mozilla should treat fractional HR tags as though they had a height of zero (or one). This would, at least, make the page functional until the author of the page could be convinced to fix the problem. I discovered this bug at http://www.domainnamesystems.com, but it happens everywhere.
