Subject: base_href works only if <head> can be found in the html
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 907b
The base_href parameter for the content method works by doing $content=~s/<head>/<head>\n<base href="$arg">/; (line 509 of v 1.18) You need at least to add the i flag to the regexp, and most likely to be able to cope with cases when there is no head tag. Accounting for cases where the head has attributes is probably slightly overkill (but easy). The fix below replaces line 509, the attached file conatins tests. Note that a real fix would entail using an HTML parser to capture the real head element. if( $content=~ /<head/i) { $content=~ s/(<head[^>]*>)/$1\n<base href="$arg">/i; } elsif( $content=~ /<html/) { $content=~ s/(<html[^>]*>)/$1\n<head><base href="$arg"><\/head>/i; } else { $content= qq{<html><head><base href="$arg"></head>$content</html>}; }
