build id: 1999051708 platform: windows NT here's the sample HTML: <HTML><HEAD><TITLE>Ich biete an</TITLE></HEAD> <BODY><A HREF="biete.htm" TARGET="main"><P>Ich<BR>biete an</P></A></BODY> </HTML> if you remove the <P> tags, the link works. as it's written above, however, the link does not work. of course, this is bad html (<P> is a block-level tag - and only %inline tags are allowed inside of an anchor). i'm filing this bug only for backwards compatibility reasons - if we don't fix this, this is fine too, I'm sure.
Reassigning to Kipp.
This may be a parser issue. When using CNavDTD, are we putting the <P> inside the link or are we closing the link before the <P>? (QA don't get debug builds so I cannot just dump the document tree...)
[ccing rickg] rickg, could you look at the comment dated 05/19/99? Thanks.
Rick, I'm assigning this bug to the parser for you to see if it is a parser issue or a layout issue. If it is a layout issue, please assign back to kipp in the layout component. Thanks.
This seem to be a parser bug. Assigning to myself.
*** Bug 7377 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
For compatibility sake allowing anchor to contain %block. Marking the bug fixed.
Fixed. 1999061409 build, NT. Long live bad HTML.
