Subject [jira] Commented: (FOR-592) Pelt skin not HTML 4.01 compliant

Ross Gardler commented on FOR-592:
----------------------------------

Gavin, are you on the dev mailing list? If not please join us there (see http://forrest.apache.org/mail-lists.html)

In our current development drive for 0.8 we are planning a move to a new way of doing our
output. Now is an ideal time to jump in and help as we have a proof of concept of what is
to come next and are currently discussing exactly how to go about implmenting it.

I imagine, since the current skinning system is to be deprecated, this issue will be solved
as part of this new approach.

To get you started on the background for this new system take a look at http://forrest.apache.org/docs_0_80/views.html

I don't know if anyone has tried validating the output from this new technique yet. Perhaps
that would be a good first step.

> Just go to the Forrest home page and click the HTML 4.01 Compliance button. The page
doesn't validate. Other sites, e.g. Apache FOP, created with the same skin have the same problem.
One issue I could identify is that in the site2xhtml.xsl there are tags like: 
>     <input type="submit" value="Search" name="Search" i18n:attr="value"/>. 
> The 'i18n:attr="value"' bit creates a non HTML 4.01 compliant attribute. Other problems
are related to Javascript not being escaped correctly, e.g.  
>      document.write("<text>Last Published:</text> " + document.lastModified);
> should be written as
>    document.write("<text>Last Published:<\/text> " + document.lastModified);
> I assume a requirement of being allowed to put the W3C HTML 4.01 Compliant logo on the
site is that the pages correctly validate. Pages based on this skin don't validate but do
carry the logo. Sounds like a problem to me.
