Re: Another Edge issue

This issue seems to have gone away. (Several tests over several hours on two machines.) Given that I tested on a couple of machines against a couple of browsers, it was (presumably) Edge specific. Maybe different content is generated for different browsers and the pipeline for Edge was borked. On us...

Another Edge issue

I found something with the "LinkedIn" site today. Using the Edge browser in Windows 10, some pages rendered badly, failed to render or were slow. Front page looked fine. I tested on two machines, two people testing. The pages rendered as expected in IE and FF. Anybody else seeing this? If so any ide...

Re: Windows 10 Edge browser bugs and Windows 10

That's interesting. My previous few and simple tests with Edge haven't shown that (yet). I had a brief look at the page you had trouble with. My derivative was in XHTML, I stripped it down to basics and only viewed in Edge. If I replaced br inside p with a sequence of p's, the content showed. My imp...

Re: Insight into designing browsers to accomodate bad markup

I didn't find an email link to Frank Olivier in the article (quick check). Might be worth contacting him to check whether the "common faults" are published / available somewhere.

Insight into designing browsers to accomodate bad markup

Here's an interesting article. Gives some insight into compromises to allow the most common errors. Too common to ignore. (They seem to be well and truly down this rabbit hole.)

Validator User Functions: Writing a header

Hi,

I'm writing a file with content created in "onMessageAdded" events.

I'd like to add a header row as the first entry in that file.

Which event should I use to do that? (I've tried onStartValidation and find that some comments are added before this event fires.)

Re: Changing validator user functions file programmatically

Yep, I'm thinking of the Validator code.

That export option is an excellent solution. I like that.

Changing validator user functions file programmatically

Hi, I'm considering automating some work with CSE, using the batch wizard. Part of it involves customised validator user functions code, for each batch. I'm not sure how best to achieve this. The user function files are set in a GUI then saved, and I don't see that setting in a veo file , which othe...

List types capitalisation issue

With html ordered lists it's possible to set the list character like this <ol type="A">. When doing this a is not the same as A . The validator gives this message for the above sample "In XHTML, enumerated attribute values are case-sensitive and must be lowercase. Instead of "A", use "a". This is in...

Re: Award for big sites with terrible HTML?

I've seen something like the hugely nested markup at the top of the page before. It came from a WYSIWYG editor wielded by somebody who delighted in applying the same markup again and again to a piece of text. (Confirmed my belief in WYSIWYN!) Hmmm. Boston University, Office of University Relations. ...

Re: A milestone (of sorts) reached in web specifications

I guess that some people who were foolishly hoping for adequate progress, may pause to think. The web might "fork". Some content defined as an improved XHTML with decent widgets and the ability to express things that HTML 5 fails to imagine . Would be interesting, and the current "system" has certai...

A milestone (of sorts) reached in web specifications

I see that some sort of agreement http://j.mp/1u9aHCb has been reached in the broken specification process that currently plagues XHTML definition!
