BUG using expat and php (request upgrade to expat-2.0.0)
Last modified: 2008-08-02 19:40:34 EDT
The steps to fix it vary greatly, depending on your system, and which fix would
be less invasive. I don't know exactly which versions are affected, but the
information I have is that if you upgrade to any php 5.x, or downgrade to any
php 4.3.x, or upgrade expat to > 2.0, then the problem goes away.
There are certain versions of expat (XML parser) -- or PHP's integration with
expat -- that do not preserve whitespace in text nodes. At least for now,
ModernBill expects that whitespace to be preserved in many cases. Many difficult
support tickets involve this issue, so I added this test with the information we
have on the problem at the moment.
Thanks for reporting this issue. Can you give a reproduction case for the bug
