Steps to reproduce: 1. Select some text 2. Right click to bring up the context menu 3. Select "View Selected Source" Things to notice: * The first tag is an error (because we were expecting a doctype as the first tag). * Containment errors don't make sense. We should probably disable error reporting in view selection source, especially since the source should be well formed (since this is a serialized DOM that's being displayed, which means that any errors should have already been fixed up by the parser).
This needs a mechanism that allows the View Source back end discover that we are viewing selection source.
One method would be to use a special MIME type for the data: URL that is currently used to do view selection source. bz suggested that we could add a type parameter to the data URL, but that requires fixing bug 532230 first.
