Description

17 years ago
Forms with text containing HTML codes or HTML-like codes (such as </P>) have the
closing tags changed to lowercase.  This occurs when text is loaded into a form
for editing, not when submitting the form.

This bug has been marked "future" because the original netscape engineer working 
on this is over-burdened. If you feel this is an error, that you or another
known resource will be working on this bug,or if it blocks your work in some way 
-- please attach your concern to the bug for reconsideration -----

the problem also happens in 2002041009 build (1.0rc2), slack8. probably it is a
parser problem.
I'd like to ask a priority change since this affects all kinds of xml code being
retrieved and later submited by a form ("closing tag mismatch" error).

yes, please up the priority.  this is *extremely* annoying if you use an html
form interface to edit html/xml templates.

test html page
For example this fails: http://jakobbg.mine.nu/jakob/files/temp/moz.html

This invalidates all xml preloaded into the form.

This goes on Linux as well, OS should be changed to ALL.
You're almost certainly not escaping markup within the <textarea>. If your 
data is, for instance, <xml>element!</xml>, your code should look like:

<textarea>
&lt;xml>element!&lt;/xml>
</textarea>
