Description Alan Cox 2005-09-19 13:34:39 EDT
The expert page contains invalid markup. This prevents elinks from using the
expert mode, and the other mode contains javascript so can't be used either
Comment 1 David Lawrence 2005-09-19 13:37:32 EDT
Will try to verify
Comment 2 Matěj Cepl 2007-04-02 11:03:05 EDT
Bugzilla contains so much broken HTML, that it is hard to believe it (take a
look at http://tinyurl.com/292p95 -- for example, didn't anybody tell to
Bugzilla authors, that id is supposed to be unique in one page --
http://www.w3.org/TR/1999/REC-html401-19991224/struct/global.html#adef-id ?). At
least when you are not able to produce valid XHTML 1.0 Strict, don't mark your
webpages as such!

This brokeness of web-pages makes it really difficult, if not almost impossible
to work around brokeness of BZ interface (or maybe just specific requirements of
this bugmaster) with Greasemonkey.

Red Hat Bugzilla is now using version 3.2 of the Bugzilla codebase and therefore this bug will need to be re-verified against the new release. With the updated code this bug may no longer be relevant or may have been fixed in the new code.
Updating bug version to 3.2.
