Subject [jira] [Commented] (DERBY-5905) Derby html documentation doesn't render properly and prints garbage on Internet Explorer
Date Wed, 15 Aug 2012 16:38:38 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-5905?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13435272#comment-13435272
] 

Kristian Waagan commented on DERBY-5905:
----------------------------------------

Looks like IE isn't able to deal with the '<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>' tag
in our docs.
I don't know if there is something else in the page that causes IE to fall over in combination
with that XML prolouge, or if the tag alone is enough.

Does anyone know the details on this?
I.e. the specifics on the ?xml-tag, the doctype tag, and relevant meta tags for IE?

Another remark is that when I copied one of the pages that IE wasn't able to display online
to my local drive, IE was able to display it. It used IE8 Quirks mode, but I don't know what
it's trying to do for the online version since everything just "hangs"/stops before I can
tell what's going on.

> 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.
