Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 219021
Bad HTML rendering
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:51 EST
Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I'm using an up-to-date FC6 (12/09/2007) and evolution-188.8.131.52-2.fc6
It happens every time I receive a HTML formated e-mail from a newspaper
Steps to Reproduce:
1. I have just to receive a HTML formated message from this newspaper
The contents are misplaced so it's difficult to read and it's pretty ugly as you
can see on attached file (cap_1.png)
A correct rendering as you can see on attached files (cap_2.png and cap_3.png)
That's the most weird: I get a bad rendering when I receive the message
(cap_1.png), but when I forward the message I get a well rendered message on my
"sent messages" (you will see "enviadas") selected folder as in cap_2.png and on
inbox of the person I forward the message as you can see on cap_3.png. I
guessed there was a problem with the original message from my newspaper that was
fixed by evolution during the forward process, but when I see the original
message using several webmail clients or microsoft outlook I get a correct html
rendering. I'm also attaching the source of the original message (source1.txt)
and the evolution generated source during forward process (source2.txt). They
are too different!! This newspaper subscription is very old and I use evolution
since first time it appeared on Fedora Core. I think this problem has appeared
since evolution was ported to mono. I have waited some releases before reporting
this bug. But I think now it's a good moment to report it.

Sorry, I think I have seen "Back to the Future" more than I should. My FC6 is
updated to 12/09/2006 level not 12/09/2007.
Hi Matthew, I am pretty aware this bug is not top priority but, as I've reported
it almost a month ago, I was expecting at least some words by now. Thanks.
Apologies for taking so long to respond.
This sounds like a rendering issue in gtkhtml3. Unfortunately I don't think I'm
going to be able to address this in a timely manner, so I'm going to move the
bug report upstream to put it in front of a wider audience where it will have a
better chance of getting fixed. I'll continue to track the problem there.
