An un/ordered list renders incorrectly when the second entry is empty. ie. the HTML list:

1. Some text

renders with the first and second line partially over each other. Test case included with and ordered list. Same behaviour with an unordered list.

Tested with most recent build: Build identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9b2pre) Gecko/2007111304 Minefield/3.0b2pre doesn't have this problem.

Raised to P3; we had a lot of complaints when we had similar bugs in releases in the past.
Attached patch Proposed fixSplinter Review
We were actually placing the block parts of the list-items just fine.  But we were positioning the bullet with its baseline at the top of the list-item.  That doesn't really make much sense.  Either we should put the baseline at the bottom (hard, because we haven't computed final size yet) or we should just leave the bullet right below the top padding (what this patch does).

That's all in the case when the list items has no lines, of course; if it has one, we'll use its baseline.

Proposed fix


I'm presuming the bullet influences the height of the first line if it needs to, so that this will guarantee the bullet doesn't overflow (unless, say, the bullet's text overflows its frame).

Though it almost seems like if a bullet contributes to the height of the block, it should be returned by GetFirstLineBaseline (or GetLastLineBaseline), even if the block is otherwise empty.  Maybe that deserves a followup bug?

(Or would that be an easy fix now?)
And a reftest would be good -- comparing a bullet on an empty block to a bullet next to an  , maybe?
Checked in, with reftest.

The reftest fails on Mac.  The empty <li>s are not as tall as the ones with an &nbsp; in them.  :(

I disabled it for now; not sure how to write a good reftest here...
