Created attachment 587202 [details]

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:9.0.1) Gecko/20111221 Firefox/9.0.1 SeaMonkey/2.6.1
Build ID: 20111221001913

Steps to reproduce:

Simply saving files in Composer causes a line break separation in the title="" of anchor tags and the alt="" of image tags.

Actual results:

In the attached example notice how the alt="Great Mother, (the primordial Creatress), Nurturance and Nourishment from the Divine" and all other such attributes are split, resulting not only in line breaks, but also in a lot of space added between the end of one line and the beginning of the next, i.e.

Great Mother,
Nurturance and
from the

Expected results:

With both title and alt attributes, the content between "" should remain contiguous, not altered as such.

Although the attached file only provides examples of the alt attribute, the same thing consistently occurs with title attributes as well.

When the line breaks and spaces in the attribute text are removed using Composer, they are renewed when the file is saved again. However, when they are removed using a simple text editor (e.g. Notepad or Wordpad), they do not reoccur when the file's saved - until the file is opened in Composer and thereby saved again.

Wow, this is weird. CC Ehsan in case he has any clues.

This might be something that our serializers do, or it might be SeaMonkey itself.  I don't really know how it saves files...
The serializer probably just inserts line breaks in any sufficiently-long attribute value....
