Let me know which browsers you've tested JSPWiki on and the issues involved. Also, please check the Test page to see if everything renders correctly.

Mozilla 0.9.x#

  • Main development platform is Mozilla 0.9.x. Mostly everything seems to work fine, both on Linux and Win98.
  • On Moz 0.9.9 clicking on "save" on Edit.jsp sometimes hangs. This occurs also on other Gecko-based browsers.

Mozilla 1.0#

  • The problem with long POSTs that was with 0.9.9 seems to have disappeared with RC1.
  • Unfortunately, "Preview" just stopped working. Using the "Back" button seems to revert to the original page without your modifications, so if you're using RC1, be careful.
  • Mozilla 1.0 RC2 seems to fix the previous problem, and works nicely. However, the problem has not been fixed for the trunk (yet, today is 14-May-2002), so don't expect nightlies to work.

Netscape 4.7x#

  • Netscape 4.75, Windows NT 4.0 - does not recognize UTF-8 encoding.
  • It would also seem that when it does recognize the UTF-8 encoding, it messes up the UTF-8 conversion. This does not happen on Win98, but seems to happen on IE4.x as well.
  • Netscape Linux - UTF-8 works but character set incomplete, hence middle chinese character appearing as ?
  • Tables are not functioning properly: Netscape way of doing CSS is so totally broken that I fear that it's not even worth supporting. :(

Konqueror 2.2#

  • Konqueror 2.2.1, Linux. Does not render all UTF-8 fonts, but does recognize them. Your average åäö work okay, but at least Japanese characters don't show. Probably a font issue.
  • Dispute: when jspwiki.encoding is set to UTF-8, a page with åäö? saved in Konqueror 2.2.1 on Linux gets cut off at the first (ISO-Latin-8859-1?) char position.
  • Confirmed. It also kills any UTF-8 encoded page, so if you edit any page with UTF-8, you remove all UTF-8 characters. Is this in the Konq known bugs list?
  • Ditto with Konqueror 2.2.2.
  • The javascript width code for Edit.jsp in v1.7.0 does not seem to work correctly with 2.2.2.
  • The LeftMenu with the user name gets rendered with plenty-of-space in 1.7.3. Odd?

Galeon 1.2.x#

  • The default font for Edit.jsp textarea is terribly small. Very odd.

iCab 2.7.1#

No obvious problems; a test page for encodings would help. Ah ha, the gobbledy gook above (Your average åäö) rendered as Ã?Â¥Ã?â?¬Ã?¶.

Which it shouldn't - they are standard UTF-8 characters. It seems that iCab does not understand UTF-8 properly. --JanneJalkanen

Internet Explorer 5.0#

  • 22.3.2002: Latest version on JSPWiki site (1.7.0?): when starting to edit a page, get a JavaScript error: Line: 58, 'document.forms.0.text' is null or not an object. At least on most browsers, I think this should be 'document.forms[0].text'. --Mikael
    • Fixed in 1.7.1.
  • IE 5.0 SP1, Windows NT 4.0. Current link in the bottom status bar displays wrong characters with UTF-8 encoding.
  • Same with IE 5.0 SP2, Windows 2000.
  • IE5.0 and Windows 2000 has been observed to result in "internal server error"[1] on about two of every three page saves. Unfortunately, I don't know what SP or special circumstances cause this. --ebu

IE 5.1, Mac OS X#

  • When encoding is set to ISO-8859-1, still posts UTF-8. This may be a problem with Tomcat as well.

Internet Explorer 5.5#

  • IE 5.5 SP2, Windows 98 - no problems.

Internet Explorer 6.0#

  • Hearsay: Javascript warning?
    • Probably fixed in 1.7.1.

Opera 6.0, Win2k & Win98#

  • Seems to have problems when page is in ISO-8859-1, and you edit a page with 8-bit characters. Characters get converted into some messy thing.
  • The auto-sizing of the edit page text box doesn't seem to do anything in Opera. It appears to be the same size as before.
    • Confirmed. Opera doesn't seem to like all CSS definitions. Also, on my Win98 box, the default font is very big - is this typical of Opera? --Janne
    • I've never noticed Opera pages looking unusually large fonted.-- MahlenMorris
  • The 'more bold' on the test page does not appear in bold.
    • It should test whether the bold attribute can survive paragraph borders. I don't think it's legal HTML anyway. --Janne

Opera 5.0, Linux#

  • It would seem that it POSTs the arguments in an odd order. We had a crash on NotificationList when someone posted a small change with Opera 5.0. Apparently it botches the line breaks or something. There's now a patch in CVS that stops the difference engine from crashing, but clearly I think we would need to just stop accepting the POSTed data and do some sanity checks on it. --Janne
    • Yeah. It's an EOL issue - all other browsers send CRLF sequences, but Opera 5.x seems to do POST in LF only. Tomcat does not do any normalizing, so we put the LF sequences into the repository. We need to do CRLF normalizing before storage.
    • I'm noticing that some of the pages that RobertMcGovern has edited appear to have line breaks doubling, so that every line break turns into two line breaks when checked in. -- MahlenMorris
    • I have noticed the same. Robert, are you the one using Opera 5.0 on Linux? -- Janne
    • Likely to be fixed in 1.7.2. --JanneJalkanen

Nokia Communicator 9210#

  • UTF-8 not supported.
  • Browsing works fine, editing as well, saving an edited page causes an internal server error[#1] (so could be fixable? contact me --MikaelHonkala
