jud, do you know who should get this? User feedback: Netscape 6.1 Problem Primary Browser: ie55 Operating System: Win2K Language: English Issue Summary: The title is not shown in the titlebar when I present a XML-doc with XSLT Component: Navigator Doing What: Other Testing XML/XSLT in NN 6.1 Severity: SomethingDidNotWorkRight Can Reproduce: DoNotKnow Try this URL: http://www.private.weboffice.dk/crn/links.xml Issue Detail: I've made a simple XML-document and transforms it with a simple XSL-stylesheet. I have a <TITLE>-tag in the stylesheet, but the titlebar (top of the Navigator window) do not change. Instead it keeps the last visited webpage's title visible.
I'll put this to XSLT since XHTML titles work correctly when XSLT is not involved.
This is one of the infamous "you can't do it js, you can't do it XSLT" bugs. The following js exposes the same bug: tmp = window.open('about:blank'); titleEl = tmp.document.createElement('title'); tmp.document.document.appendChild(titleEl); titleVal = tmp.document.createTextNode("This won't show"); titleEl.appendChild(titleVal); My testing suggests that the title in the display can only be changed thru document.title. Modifying the DOM just doesn't do anything at all. And modifying document.title does nothing to the DOM, at least nothing I can see in DumpDOM. Peter, I guess it's you, whether you change the component or not. At least you might have to workaround this in the output. Ugh. Axel
Moving out :(.
The fix for this bug will be in bug 96647.
All these missed the bus/train/plane/boat/whatever. Sad.
The patch for 96647 is nearly done, but it's a bit big and we need time for reviews, unless something serious comes up this should land early in 0.9.7.
Patch for bug 96647 should be final, so these will be fixed early in 0.9.9 (really!).
Fixed by the patch for bug 96647.
VERIFIED. Orange juice to peterv :-)
