Subject [jira] [Commented] (DERBY-5905) Derby html documentation doesn't render properly and prints garbage on Internet Explorer
Date Wed, 15 Aug 2012 17:35:40 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-5905?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13435332#comment-13435332
] 

Kim Haase commented on DERBY-5905:
----------------------------------

Before 10.8, the '<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>' tag appeared after the commented-out
Apache license code; at 10.8 and after, the tag appears at the top of the file. Could that
make a difference?

I also notice that if I open the HTML files that I generated on my local system, IE can read
them just fine. (No idea if any Quirks are involved.) Only if I look at the ones deployed
on an internal web server prior to putting them on an external website do I see the problem.

> 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.
