Support cite attribute of blockquote
Easy, but how? That way: <example> Somebody Else wrote: <mid:email@example.com> > bla </example> ? I don't think, we can add the URL to the "wrote:" line, because the linebreak is already written, when blockquote is processed. akk, what do you think?
I don't understand what that mid: tag is doing in your example. Is that even legal html? http://www.w3.org/TR/1998/NOTE-HTMLThreading-0105 uses mid: tags as part of the cite attribute to a blockquote, i.e. Somebody Else wrote: <blockquote cite="mid:2345678"> bla </blockquote> The editor API already supports that in InsertAsCitedQuotation (just pass in the mid:2345678 as the cite argument).
No, that was no HTML, but "proposed" output of the HTMLToTXTSinkStream for a HTML part like the one you gave.
Oh, sorry I misunderstood. Are there really people who want mid: URLs in their plaintext messages? The W3C reference doesn't suggest doing anything like that for plaintext.
> Are there really people who want mid: URLs in their plaintext messages? Some mailers seem to do that by default in the "blabla wrote" line (but without scheme). You might be right, that the msg-id is not of interest in ~98% of the cases. We would also have the problem of redundant msg-ids, if the user adds new thext in the middle of the quote, e.g. <example> Somebody Else wrote: <mid:firstname.lastname@example.org> > bla Yes! <mid:email@example.com> > bla Right! </example> OTOH, the cite attribute might hold important information, e.g. if a webpage is quotes. Should we special-case (i.e. process only, if not "mid"-scheme)?
Isn't this a duplicate of bug 30376? I'm not sure how to mark something as a duplicate.
thekingpenguin, you mean bug #29653? No, see the component. This bug is about HTML to text conversion, the other one about putting the info in the HTML. See <http://www.mozilla.org/bug.html> for info about bugzilla.
This is frontend work. REASSIGNing to nobody.

I'm dumb. This bug is for the HTML->TXT converter. Back me to.

Changing personal priorities. Giving away most of my bugs :-( (reassigning to default owner). I will still track these bugs closely. If you need my input, feel free to ask me. New owner: Please do *not* close these bugs (as WONTFIX or whatever you may find) unless they are fixed. Rather, reassign to <firstname.lastname@example.org>, if you don't want to work on them.

Comment on attachment 171432 [details] Lack of cite attribute support uncovered by CSS You misunderstood this bug. It's about outputting the content of the cite attribute when converting HTML to plaintext, e.g. while sending mail.
