Subject: XHTML output incompatible with Mozilla
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 466b
Hello, I'm having trouble with either the Javascript or the CSS that is produced from the synopsis.pl example being displayed in Mozilla on Linux. The main thing is that the actual graphical bar isn't displayed. Running the page with IE on Windows, everything works fine. I've checked the syntax with W3.org's HTML checker and it says that it is invalid XHTML. I'm working on a patch for this to submit to you, but wanted to make you aware of it. Thanks, Kevin

The problem was that the stylesheet was output within the HTML 'body' element, which is not valid. The soloution is ... poor. In OO mode, an inline CSS will be generated in the 'head' element. The functional mode, though, is screwed, because the styles are generated based on paramters supplied by the user at the time of calling &progress_bar, which is naturally in the body of the document. A potential soloution is to have an &init_progressbar method: what do you think? Cheers, Lee

Yes, that solution might work. Have you considered moving the Javascript into a .js file and the CSS into a .css file linking to them via something like this: For the CSS: <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" title="default style" href="untitled.css" /> For the Javascript: <script LANGUAGE="JavaScript" src="/scripts.js"></SCRIPT> Let me know if you have something to test. I'd be happy to help. Just a thought... Kevin
