FreeBSD 4.1 20000918xx Select some text from this page (which is formatted with <pre>). Paste it into an editor/etc. Note that all the formatting (line breaks) has been lost. The problem appears to be specific to <pre>. Not sure if this is the right component...
How does this work with 4.x? My guess is that it would have to do something with the parser if the document is *formatting* properly in the browser. No?
Under 4.x and IE it works just fine - the selected text retains it's formatting (i.e. it's line breaks). The document displays correctly in Mozilla, it's only on Copy/Paste that <PRE> text has a problem. Regular non-<PRE> text Copy/Pastes fine.
I'll grab ownership of this one. cc'ing Akkana
joe, is this important enough for rtm, or should it be futured? whatever you think. anthonyd
this can wait till post rtm
It seems line break is lost when a line ends with </a>.
Sorry, the previously attached testcase was wrong.
This is now fixed in mozilla, but not in ns6 branch. hoping to land in ns6 prior to rtm. pdt folks: this is fixed by noxif landing.
