Why doesn't mozilla grok <a name="foo" id="foo" /> correctly (rather than deciding that the rest of the block is inside an anchor?).

I'm still using 1.6 because other people have reported problems with gmail with 1.7

Could that be related to the problem mentioned here?

I have no idea.
I believe that emperor downloads his mozillae from mozilla.org, though.

No, since I downloaded mozilla 1.7 from mozilla.org, and gmail claims that javashit can't set cookies (even though I have mozilla configured to allow this).

This is Very Annoying.

Have you reported it to the Gmail Help Team?

It took them a while to get back to me, but they did do so eventually.

They haven't ever got back to me! One acknowledgement out of three requests/notifications; no followup.

I told them how shoddy their support work is when they asked me to do a user survey last week.

Gmail and Mozilla 1.7.1 seem to work fine together for me.

Does this ---><--- <a /> tag work properly (without highlighting bits of the line as anchor?)?

No, it does highlight it. I asked Jus, who is the knowledgeable one of us about this, and he says that he's not sure that <a is slash-closable like that according to the standards.

I dunno, me. He's the one who can say "XMLification" and look as though he knows what he's saying. And cute.

Yeah, someone else suggested that.

It should be though; since a contentless <a /> makes sense (in the context of <a name=foo /> anyway).

*sigh*

but does it? I would argue not - the A isn't the target, it marks the target - of course, you shouldn't be using A for that anyway, you should be putting it into the markup that is associated with the target...

But when I say "I don't know if it is allowed", I don't mean "I don't think that is allowed"

Any element can be made empty with an empty tag in XML. In HTML elements are either empty or not according to their name and <a id="foo" /> is a syntax error, as is <br /> for that matter. "HTML-compatible" XHTML is a delusion of the W3C.

Oh, *bah*. Upgrading mozilla is such a pain, and it somehow contrives to eat my plug-ins every time :(

Untar to a new directory, link the plugins, change the mozilla symlink, later on delete the old directory. Where's the pain?

It's a hideous installer of vileness.

[confused by your comment, I went looking, and it seems you can get a plain tarball. I'll try that later. The front-page just offers the evil installer, though, which is why I used that]

They've had the tarball for ages. It's much easier.

hmmm, i'm not having gmail problems with mozilla 1.7; i'm using the debian package though. there was an initial problem where the PSM somehow got uninstalled, but apt-get mozilla-psm fixed that fairly quickly.

Oooh. I'd best tell Jus, since he wants to migrate me from 1.3.1 to 1.7 tonight :)
