#6623 new defect

emitting invalid xml:space="preserve" attributes on wiki and ticket pages (causes failed W3C validation)

Reported by: Daniel Kahn Gillmor <dkg-debian.org@…> Owned by:
Priority: low Milestone: next-major-releases
Component: wiki system Version: 0.11b1
Severity: normal Keywords: whitespace xml:space

Internal Changes:


I'm running a newly-updated trac site on version 0.11b1, using genshi 0.4.4.

When testing it against the W3C's XHTML validator, it is almost entirely compliant output, with one exception:

 Line 65, Column 49: there is no attribute "xml:space".
      <div class="wikipage searchable" xml:space="preserve">

The W3C itself says that this is legitimate XML, but that it must be "declared if it is used". i'm not enough of a web standards guru to be able to tell what that means, or where to fix the problem (is it a problem with genshi? with trac? with the W3C validator?)

Trac itself is so close to full validation that it would be a real shame for this one thing to slip through.

Component: generalwiki
Keywords: whitespace added
Milestone: 0.12
Owner: changed from Jonas Borgström to Christian Boos

This is done on purpose, in order to workaround the #3925 issue.

Real fix should be done in the WikiEngine refactoring, see TracDev/Proposals/WikiParserFormatterSplit#Technicaldetails.

Keywords: xml:space added

Looks like this should be no longer the case with recent Genshi (≥ [G805]).

I keep the ticket open as a reminder to get rid of r5586 once the Wiki formatter emits <pre> elements.

Replying to cboos:

… a reminder to get rid of r5586 once the Wiki formatter emits <pre> elements.

If it emits <pre> elements one day. See caveat in #8770.
