Fix Sought for XHTML Charset Detection Bug

Saturday May 1st, 2004

Boris Zbarsky is appealing for someone to fix a bug that causes the charset to be ignored for some XHTML documents: "It'd be nice to have someone come forward and help fix bug 240962. The code that needs fixing is pointed to in the bug, and the bug needs fixing on the 1.7 branch, so what's needed is a minimal change that makes things better. The catch is that it needs some good testing before being checked in, hence whoever picks this up needs to do said testing..."

Update: Thanks to James Ross, the bug has now been fixed on both the trunk and the 1.7 branch.

this is the first time, in my experience, that mozillazine has actually openly pushed for a specific bug to be fixed. there have been plenty of bugs with simple solutions available that have spent far too much time waiting for someone to pick them up. not that i don't want to see this bug fixed, but what's so special with this one in particular?
