Description

14 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20040913 Firefox/0.10.1
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20040913 Firefox/0.10.1

When given tags such as the following:

<p>
test1
<blockquote>test</blockquote>
test2
</p>

with style sheets such as:

p{
color: red;
}

blockquote{
color: blue;
}

test1 will appear red, however test2 will take over the default style of the
page even though the p tag is still in effect and the blockquote tag has ended.

I have noticed this bug with seve

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
index.html
<html>
	<head>
		<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />
		<title>example0001</title>
		<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="/example/example0001/style.css" />
	</head>
<body text="#566666">
<p>
test1
<blockquote>test</blockquote>
test2
</p>
</body>
</html>

style.css
p{
color: red;
}

blockquote{
color: blue;
} 
Actual Results:  
Text test1 was red, text Test was blue, text test2 was grey (assigned by body tag)

Expected Results:  
test1 should be red, test should be blue, test2 should be red

Default theme, no major extensions.

I have others test this in other versions of mozilla/firefox and some have
reported the same problem (however I was unable to get the version numbers)

The p tag will loose all formating, even the formating assigned by an enclosing
tag such as a div, the text after the <blockquote> in this example will take the
root pages default styles (from the body tag, not from the .CSS file).

I was able to test this with divs, blockquote, span, even other p tags, and they
all resulted in the same problem AFTER the tag and before the end of the
origional p grouping.

The work around I have found is to rid my site of the p tag and keep everything
withing div tags.

P has an optional end tag and cannot contain BLOCKQUOTE.
