Subject [jira] [Commented] (DERBY-5905) Derby html documentation doesn't render properly and prints garbage on Internet Explorer
Date Tue, 21 Aug 2012 10:21:38 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-5905?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13438578#comment-13438578
] 

Knut Anders Hatlen commented on DERBY-5905:
-------------------------------------------

I've backported the fix to 10.8 (revision 1375449) and 10.9 (revision 1375447). I don't think
we have any automated build jobs that update the docs for old branches on the web site, so
we'll have to update them manually. We usually only update them when there's a new release
on the branch. Does anyone see any problems with making the web site display docs that don't
exactly match the docs in the latest released version on the branch?

> 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.
