Thank you for this test case.

This comment is highly inappropriate. Inappropriate in general, as you are
expected to remain polite and respectful in reporting issues with this free

It is also inappropriate in this particular case. Your bug report was poor and
confusing. You should have:
- attached a test case, or
- pointed to a test case, or at least
- given clear information about the document type used
Instead, you gave unclear and confusing information, mentioning XHTML and
quoting the XHTML 1.0 specification, hence the assumption that this is the
document type you were using. The issue *was* tested with XHTML 1.0, and found
inexistent there. 

Now that we have decent information about the issue, now that we know you were
using XHTML 1.1 we will be looking into its cause and solutions.

Please try to send proper bug reports in the future, and to do so with an
appropriate tone.
