User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; FreeBSD i386; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050819 Firefox/1.0.4 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; FreeBSD i386; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050819 Firefox/1.0.4 If visiting http://rink.nu/tmp/broken.html, you will see that Firefox incorrectly renders the document content as part of the <textarea> attribute. However, W3C's validator claims the page is correct XHTML, so this should not happen. Only elinks (lynx and w3m fail) renders the page correctly of all browsers I have access to. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: Visit the URL. Actual Results: You will see part of the document in the textarea, whereas it should appear in the document. Expected Results: It should support short-tag <textarea /> in which textarea's do not have any content. The only solution is to use <textarea></textarea>, which does render fine.
If you want to use XHTML, you need to send the page as application/xhtml+xml, otherwise it is considered HTML.
