Description Dana Mison 2009-02-19 20:52:52 EST
Description of problem:
Internet Explorer users cannot use the html documentation that is generated by publican.

The object tag that is required for all non-IE browsers to display SVG seems to cause IE to break the entire page.  If you use <img>it still renders as a broken image because the format is not supported but doesn't break the whole page.  

<object data="Common_Content/images/redhat-logo.svg" type="image/svg+xml"/> 

This means that page breaks immediately after the subtitle and is not usable.

A JBoss JIRA was raised, https://jira.jboss.org/jira/browse/SOA-1179 , to report this.

Because SVG content does not display natively in Internet Explorer anyway perhaps we should convert the SVG to png and display via <img>

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
publican 0.42

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.attempt to view publican generated html docs in Internet Explorer 7
eg. http://www.redhat.com/docs/en-US/JBoss_SOA_Platform/4.3.GA/html-single/Programmers_Guide/index.html

Actual results:
screenshot  from JIRA attached

Expected results:

Comment 2 Jeff Fearn 2009-02-20 18:32:49 EST
Possible fix is to modify the XSL that generates the object tags to output:

<object data="Common_Content/images/title_logo.svg" type="image/svg+xml">
	<img src="Common_Content/images/title_logo.png" alt="Alternate image for broken browsers"> 

This should allow non-compliant browsers to fall back to a png image.

Hope to get to test this next week.
Comment 3 Jeff Fearn 2009-02-23 22:44:40 EST
I modified the SQL so that browsers that can not display the SVG will display the text object used for the ALT text. Tested OK in IE 7.

This solution will mean most existing books do not need to be modified to display in IE7.
