| I'm specifically concerned about the following open Mozilla bug:
|
| <http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=26022>

Here a couple of other interesting XHTML bugs.

<URL: http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=26026 >: "embeded
stylesheet in XHTML 1.0 document is not recognized."

Some comments:

"We don't currently support inline style attributes or style tags inside
XML
documents.  Marking M19..."

"This bug has been marked "future" because the original netscape
engineer working
on this is over-burdened." (This means that it won't get fixed for
Mozilla 5.0!)

<URL: http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=27507 >: "Crash
instead of blank page for malformed xhtml page"

Some comments:

"OK, I'm confusing myself. I meant to say (and this time I mean it :-)
"The
bottom line is that if the mimetype is text/html, we should treat the
contents as HTML, even if it contains an XML decl."

"Oh good grief. The XHTML spec itself is very clear. XHTML documents can
be
served as either text/html or text/xml, and we will follow two distinct
code
paths (via the xml sink or the html sink+strict DTD)." :(
