Description Patrick C. F. Ernzer 2005-11-04 10:32:29 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050921 Red Hat/1.0.7-1.4.1 Firefox/1.0.7

Description of problem:
I just had the following:
        f.field__other_notes_text.value="It is imperative to switch off  'OS Load Timeout' in the BIOS (under 'Boot'), otherwise the machine will reset during installation (when the timeout is reached)

This is a test config that is massively paired down, it is ponly for my (pcfe) benefit, and does not count at all towards certification";

(note the empty line)

Which had my browser nag: Error: unterminated string literal

editing the offending file by hand and removing the two ^M solved the problem

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. add a 'Other Notes' which contains empty lines
2. Submit
3. Try to access http://MYSERVER/ispec/html/ via browser

Actual Results:  only logo and heading visible, opening the JavaScript error dialog on the browser shows "Error: unterminated string literal"

Expected Results:  correct parsing of empty lines

Additional info:

at the very least we should silently ditch the offending ^M

client info:
on a RHEL4 U1 based distro
