Hi Albert, Those messages are a Windows 2003 thing. Just part of the normal run of operations, after reboot. I seldom send the report but I really like a reminder of anything that might have gone wrong. (I've never taken the time to get a deeper insight into this subsystem.) I'm running a fair amoun...

Hi, To get a clean slate I ran a reboot (something I normally avoid) and tested again . Findings as follows: 1) After reboot I think I got three messages from OS as follows, "I shut down do you want to report", "I closed CSE" and "I closed CSE do you want to report". 2) After that validation worked ...

Hi, I've looked at the failing page again. (page sent in separate email) Details: 1) CSE 8 installed but CSE 7 DLL in system directory and CSE 7 installed in parallel. 2) The page now fails every time whether it's the first or a subsequent page. Formerly see previous posts. 3) The page was created a...

In my brief test the corresponding messages had regular and corresponding text descriptions, this suggested a simple technique:

Code: Select all

If both nsgml and cse messages on line

Extract signature from each nsgml message

Match signature with all cse messages

If match dump nsgml message

Hi Albert, Unfortunately the problem is intermittent , so not reliably reproducible. (Timing? First Page checked?) I was disappointed when it happened again. The repeats were silent shutdown of CSE 8 so I don't know of any documentation that could throw light on the issue. (I got the more useful mes...

I just ran another check and got an exception. I loaded a page from a local (IIS 6) web server. The page loaded fine, but when I came to validate it crashed . (This is a Windows 2003 machine) Window was titled: \rtf\b Line:\b01 cse80.exe Application Error and message was Instruction at 0x00200074 re...

I've just checked what nsgmls is about. It's the checker behind both the W3C and WDG on-line tools. Produced I think by James Clark. That immediately tells me that it has at least one use with CSE. I can use it to see what those other checkers will detect. (Without going on-line.) It would be more u...

First thoughts with 8 Beta 1

I just installed the Beta 1, here's some initial observations: 1) For a Beta install, I planned ahead and prepared the way to replace the 7 DLL in the system directory after installation. It would save time to have a switch to not install it for the Beta setup. 2) It struck me how useful it would be...

That date change issue is one thing that could be a problem. One answer is to use a "touch" mechanism. By this I mean one of those tools that changes (touches) date, read write attributes etc. on a file. In this case you use it to ensure that all is put back the way you want it after processing the ...

Hi, I'm interested in your situation, because I face similar issues. If you have developers who only develop, one potential option is to set up their copies of CSE to validate source. If they also validate web server output an alternative browser setup can be used for that. (If there are several peo...

On the issue of checking source and checking output, I'd recommend checking the actual generated page, whatever else you do.

(Checking source is actually a different job, if you have an output processor (JSP, ASP, ASPX...). In that case separate configurations are needed.)

What you do depends on what you are comfortable with. One approach that springs to mind, for those who don't mind a little light programming is to code up a script. It could be run outside your development environment when you are ready to publish. You might define a special tag within the body say ...

Interface to (unit) test .NET 2 generated markup with CSE

If anyone is using CSE to check markup generated using .NET 2 , this might help. It's an interface (with source) which can be used within your NUnit or MBUnit tests. It comes in two versions. One interfaces with Lite the other with Standard and Pro. An article at http://www.decisionz.com/document/CM...

Re: Batch Wizard requests (almost) infinite loop of pages

Hi Paul, Like Albert I'm unsure of what these long URL's actually mean Requested "http://www.nature.com/onc/journal/v25/n1/fig_tab/1209010f1.html?url=/onc/journal/v25/n1/full/1209010f2.html?url=/onc/journal/v25/n1/full/1209010f2.html?url=/onc/journal/v25/n1/full/1209010f2.html?url=/onc/journal/v25/n...
