Go to http://www.thehigherauthority.com/apollo.html Your expecting to see an image and some yellow text, you only see an image. If you try it with ms-ie-5.5 or ns-4.08 you see the text. OS:MS2000 MOZ version: Milestone 0.93
The text is there, it's just in black. Have them fix the page. <BODY BGCOLOR="#000000" TEXT="FFFF00"> ^ should be a hash there Thanks for the report.

if we could easily solve the problem in the client would that be a better solution since 4x and IE seem to handle this quirk? looks like there is a z order problem on the horizontal lines that go through the appollo image on the left side..
talked with attinasi -- and we figured out that the doctype is missing the Transitional phrase. If the 'correct' dtd is used: <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"> it works like a champ, but the one used in the document: <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN"> is not recognized, but we seem to treat it as standard mode and not quirks mode. March pointed me to bugs 61901 and 44340
ok. removing topembed and returning to a regular docytype evang bug.
I reviewed the spec (http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/) and the doctype statement: <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN"> is the doctype for strict mode, all color specific attributes are deprecated in the strict DTD, so this is really a evang issue.
i neglected to finish my statement: although the attributes are deprecated, they must be honored. In strict mode, the # is required, in transitional (loose) mode the # does not necessarily need to be there.
handing this one over to harish to start with

I don't think that this should be a topembed. In the transitional mode ( which is majority of the web ) we seem to render as expected. I'll investiage the behavior for strict mode. FYI: If it turns out that in the strict mode '#' is optional then the decision has to be made at the layout level not in the parser. Parser always functions in quirks mode ( except for comment parsing ).
The '#' is not optional in strict mode. I stringly recommend we continue to require it in strict mode.
I am pretty sure that Tech Evangelism bugs should not be topembed. If this is a Mozilla bug, it needs to be sent to the component that can best handle this, Layout probably. Otherwise, we should remove topembed. Somehow, I highly doubt that embedders around the globe are refusing to use gecko because thehigherauthority.com doesn't render correctly.

Based on Marc's last comment it looks like we're exhibiting the correct behavior in quirks and strict modes. That is, the site has to be evangelised.
Ok, topembed removed then. Move along folks, nothing to see here.
ok. we will contact the site. reassigning to default owner and removing topembed from the bug. Unless the rest of you on the cc: list want to be subjected to evangelism spam, I recommend that you remove yourself or tell me and I will do it for you.
