Mozilla 1.1 News Reports

Tuesday August 27th, 2002

Though not as major as 1.0, a few tech sites noted the launch of Mozilla 1.1. A Mozilla release just wouldn't be the same without an article from Slashdot and the site offers up the usual collection of user comments. The more mainstream ZDNet News concentrates on the speed and stability improvements of the new version while delivers little more than a rehash of the Release Notes. Thanks to everyone who sent us links to news.

UPDATE! CNET has an article focussing on consumer reaction to the new release. The report sums up the feedback as "mixed", though this does seem to be largely based on a single Slashdot comment.

#27 Non-breaking spaces

I haven't checkd out 1.1 yet, but I did check 1.0.1 Release Candidate 2. If you have 1.0.1. RC2, then see <> and you should notice the trouble with tables right away. I haven't checked out the page's own source code, but it very probably contains non-braking spaces. The problem is that Mozilla does not show non-breaking spaces correctly, while all Netscape 4 and IE versions (haven's seen what 6 shows) show non-breaking spaces correctly. Here's an example of what I am implying to: When you have a table with one cell's width set to 100% and the cell right after that contains a non-breaking space, the cell's content breaks with a non-breaking space in the first row of text, another set of text wrapped to the second row and if there's a non-breaking space after that text, then it wraps after that text, creating an illusion of that table cell containing two break tags. I hope this problem will be corrected by the time the more perfect 1.0.1 will be released.
