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.
What's special is that this is a serious recent regression, it shouldn't be hard to fix, just a little time-consuming, and that I cared enough to look for help.
Note that I'm not saying "this bug should be fixed; someone needs to do it" like people do when they push for bugs. I'm asking, "is there anyone out there who has time to do it?" Very different sort of thing....
