-------------------------------------

             Summary: Derby html documentation doesn't render properly and prints garbage
on Internet Explorer
                 Key: DERBY-5905
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-5905
             Project: Derby
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Documentation
    Affects Versions: 10.9.1.0, 10.8.2.2, 10.10.0.0
            Reporter: Kathey Marsden


There have been reports that DERBY html documentation does not render on Internet Explorer
8 and 9.

Kristian reports on IE8
Just tried with IE8, and with the Getting Started manual I get this when I view the source:
"""
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
<HTML><HEAD>
<META content="text/html; charset=utf-8" http-equiv=Content-Type></HEAD>
<BODY></BODY></HTML>
<snipped garbage as to not put it in jira>

Not sure how that last line will turn out in your email clients, but it is indeed garbage
and you can see that the body-tag is empty. Nothing is rendered in the browser. We are using
frames though - that's not exactly state-of-the-art... We are also using the wrong DOCTYPE.
I'm suspecting that the HTML is invalid too, but haven't checked. 

On IE9 I had heard that the reference HTML manual prints garbage.
