I hope that that title means what I think it means!
A scenario! In the course of developing a page I take a skeleton
document and populate it with lots of stuff. Part of the skeleton is -
part of the heading. The outer object refers to an image/svg+xml file, the
inner one to an image/png file.
At the bottom of the page I have two other images in -
of the trailer. Both the objects are image/png.
When editing the document (using StrongED) I occasionally want to check it
and click on the StrongED run button. If we number the png files 1 (84px
wide by 479px high), 2 (88px wide by 31px high), 3 (88px wide by 31px high)
what is shown is 1, 2, 1! However, if I eliminate png No 1 from the
document and click refresh in the Netsurf window there is no image 1 (as
expected) in the header - but there is in the trailer. I can refresh until
I am blue in the face and that non-existent (very much squashed) image
I thought I would try to defeat the bug - quit Netsurf - re-loaded the
document from scratch and the images 2 and 3 appeared in the float as
expected. Return the file to its original state - refresh - up comes image
1 in the right place - but also in place 3 as well!
I have even gone to the extent of validating the file against the
appropriate xml Schema (which was OK anyway!) so that eliminated that
At present the matter is just mildly annoying as I am in the throes of
writing about 600 individual documents specifying a new programming
language - not yet for public consumption. It does, however, seem to be
another oddity which might be interesting to track down.
Keep up the first rate work, please!
