Reporting DOM Bugs? Be Sure to Read This!

Monday November 8th, 1999

Eric Krock has a request for anyone report DOM bugs:

"Please bookmark the below URLs!!!

If you hit a page that doesn't display well or has JavaScript errors in Nav5 (Mozilla) because the page uses MS IE4/5 DOM features, Nav4 Layer DOM features, or the LAYER/ILAYER tag, DON'T FILE A BUG in Bugzilla. Instead, use the below email creation templates to send an email to the page's owner asking them to upgrade the page to support W3C standards.

If the page supports IE4/5 but not HTML 4.0/W3C DOM:

If the page supports Nav4 but not HTML 4.0/W3C DOM:

If the page is breaking because of user agent detection problems:

(Use that one when a page doesn't work or has a JavaScript error because the client-side JavaScript isn't detecting the Navigator 5 Mozilla/5.0 userAgent string, or discover that a server-side CGI is returning the wrong page because it's not detecting the Mozilla/5.0 HTTP USER_AGENT string or is choking on its HTTP 1.1 CONTENT_TYPE string.)

Likewise, if you're examining a bug report in Bugzilla and realize it's caused by these issues, mark the bug INVALID. Then use the email creation templates to notify the bug reporter and the page owner of the need to upgrade. Bugs closed as INVALID in this way count half a point in the BugAThon!

Hint to avoid filing bogus bugs: if content on a page doesn't position correctly or there's a JavaScript error, do a View Source and look (or copy and paste and search in a text editor) for the strings document.all and layer (case insensitive). If you find those strings in the JavaScript or the HTML markup, think twice before filing a bug. Create a simplified test case without the proprietary features and see if the problems still occurs.

THIS LETTER IS WRITTEN IN FRENCH AND ENGLISH. CETTE LETTRE EST ECRITE EN FRANÇAIS ET l'anglais. From: Miss Mariam Mustapha Abidjan, Cote D'Ivoire. +225 07725768 Email: <>

Dearest One,


Good day and how are you today? I hope fine. Please permit me to inform you of my desire of asking you to be a guardian or foster parent to me and then help me out in what i am about to tell you. My name is Miss Mariam Mustapha (23). I am the only child of Late Mr. & Mrs. Ahmed Mustapha. My father was a very wealthy cocoa merchant here in Abidjan, the economic capital of Cote D'Ivoire. He was poisoned to death by his business associates on one of their outings on a business trip. My mother died when I where baby. Before the death of my father in a private hospital here in Abidjan, he secretly called me by his bed side and told me that he has the sum of Ten million five hundred thousand United State Dollars USD ($10.500,000) deposited in a suspense account in one of the big banks here in Abidjan. He told me that he used my name (Mariam Mustapha) as the next of Kin in depositing the money.

He then strongly advised me not to seek for assistance in the investment of the money from his lawyer nor any of his friend here but to seek for a foreign partner from a country of my choice (outside our country, Cote D'Ivoire) that will assist me in the wise investment of the money. I have since left the money in the bank with the view of my making use of it for investment purposes after my education carrier here. But as you may be already aware by now, our country (Cote D’Ivoire) is presently at political crises. Rebels have already taken over the whole Northern part of the country and making efforts towards the capture of the commercial centre of the country, Abidjan, where i am now.

For this ugly development in this country, i have now decided to take quick actions and have this money transferred out of this country before it is too late to do that. I now want to transfer it out and use it for investment purpose like real estate management or hotel management. Because of this i am honourably seeking your assistance in the following ways:

(1) To serve as a guardian to me and then assist me transfer the money into your bank account. (2) To make arrangement for me to come over to your country to further my education and then settle there permanently.

If you accept to stand as my guardian or foster parent to me, i need not discuss on any percentage with you as you have to see the whole money as yours and then assist me invest it. But if you still want a percentage, I am willing to offer you 20 % of the total money as compensation for your assistance. Please tell me if you feel the percentage I offered is not ok by you.

As soon as I receive your concrete assurance to assist me with my proposal and also your full contact address/phone number, I will then give the bank your contact information and then tell them to transfer the money into your account as I want to come over to stay with you permanently. The bank will then contact you and communicate with you on the transfer. You shall then be giving me information on when the transfer will be over. I will also send my pictures to you and shall also need yours too.

No matter what your decision may turn out to be, please I beg you to keep this highly secret for my safety, as I believe that those that killed my Daddy are still after me. Please reply me through this my more private and confidential email box: <> Thanks and God bless you.

Best regards, Miss Mariam Mustapha. +225 07725768 <>
