Part way through a particular web page, HTML stops being rendered
I have an internal web page, and one of my users reported to me that it looked wrong in Firefox 5.0.
The page just has VERY simple HTML; it doesn't use CSS, but it has font tags with colors specified. The code has been generated by code, so it is completely uniform from line to line. Everything renders correctly for so many lines, and then all of a sudden the HTML stops rendering, and the remaining content of the file is displayed in plain text. You can easily View Source on the page and verify that the code is intact and correct. I am baffled by this issue that only seems to affect Firefox 5.o.
Although it's an internal web page, I've made a version of it publically available in case somebody would like to take a look at it. Any insight you have will be appreciated!
Re: Part way through a particular web page, HTML stops being rendered
Thank you. I knew the malformed HTML was not optimal (it had never been a priority to fix as it was just one of many poorly-coded legacy pages I inherited), but I was fascinated by the fact it worked in every other browser, and especially by the fact that it rendered fine most of the way down the page and then suddenly stopped! I appreciate your explaining that it had to do with the stricter HTML parser and/or exceeding a nesting threshold.
If only we lived in a world where all web browsers interpreted things the same...
