If you have: <a href="t" title="Henrik Gemal <firstname.lastname@example.org> Henrik Gemal <email@example.com> Henrik Gemal <firstname.lastname@example.org>">Henrik Gemal <email@example.com></a> that's a title tag that includes a newline the newline char is show as || in the tooltip when the cursor is over the link. Expected: Newlines in title tags should just be ignored. Build Gecko/20001226
Correction: Newlines shouldn't be ignored. The title should just be shown correct with the newlines. Will attach screenshot of Mozilla and IE handling the attached testcase.
Summary: Newlines in title tooltip is show a two vertical lines (||) → Newlines in title tooltip is shown as two vertical lines (||)
Happens with the "MIT" link at the bottom of http://www.w3.org/DOM/ as well. cc'ing Hixie to make sure we're right about what the the correct behavior is.
Correct behaviour is to treat newlines as whitespace (and trim leading and trailing whitespace) per HTML4 and SGML. I don't know what we should do in XML. This is a parser-level requirement per the spec. Check Bugzilla's INVALID, WONTFIX and FIXED bugs with the words "newline" and "attribute" in the description fields for bugs similar to this one where this has been discussed to death.
But what should we do for
? (What do we do now?) In a DOM where we want to preserve all whitespace for editing, etc. (perhaps this is contrary to SGML, though, but...), how should we behave? (How should we handle 'content: attr(X); white-space: pre'?)
> But what should we do for
? Exactly the same thing we do for ordinary CRs/LFs. There are *no* difference in: <CR>
They're *exactly* the same characters (they're canonically equivalent). See also <URL: http://www.w3.org/TR/charmod/ >
