Mozilla Branches for 0.9.8

Wednesday January 23rd, 2002

mozilla.org today branched for Mozilla Milestone 0.9.8, as well as opened the tree for 0.9.9 checkins. Look for branch builds to start sometime later this week, as early as tomorrow. (While a certain site believes that without builds, you can't have a branch, that is not true.) Pre-0.9.9 trunk builds will start tomorrow, or possibly tonight. See our earlier story for what's new in 0.9.8.

And at times, they can be excused for not having good documentation available covering ways to work around bugs in the browsers. For example, what's the proper way to send XHTML to both IE and Mozilla? Sending as text/html makes Mozilla parse it as SGML rather than XML (<http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=109837> and ). Without a stylesheet, IE will draw XHTML sent as application/xhtml+xml <http://www.ietf.org/inter…er-xhtml-media-reg-02.txt> as an outliner view (which looks like a collapsible "view source" instead of rendering it as HTML. How are web developers supposed to know that such a stylesheet exists, and that it's not just an inherent inability of IE to handle XHTML?
