#746 closed defect (wontfix)

DOCTYPE and Firebird collide

Reported by: ojilles@… Owned by: Jonas Borgström
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: general Version: 0.7.1
Severity: normal Keywords: firebird doctype

Internal Changes:


I'm using firebird 0.7. As long as header.cs contains this:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"

The CSS files are not getting loaded. Whereas if I load exactly the same URL in IE (v. 6.0.2600). If I just remove the doctype declaration everything just works correctly (not that we're complying with any spec then…).

On a similar note, if I try to load http://projects.edgewall.com/trac/download/ in Firbird it won't load.

Resolution: wontfix
Status: newclosed

I'm closing this bug since it's not a Trac bug, it's a Firebird one and Firebird 0.7 is outdated. Firebird is now named Firefox and is up to version 0.9.3 at this time. Please download an up-to-date version of Firefox.

In the future if you find bugs along these lines where a bug in other software causes problems with Trac, it is best to file the bug report for the other software, not for Trac. In some cases it may be necessary for Trac to provide workarounds for these types of bugs, but it's still best to fix the root cause of the bug.

Thanks for the explanation. I didn't think that Firebird was so outdated that those doctype declarions would break rendering the pages. Anyway, thanks for the explanation, I'll try to upgrade.
