Hi,

I'm writing some documentation that includes a link to an infocenter bug. When I open the page in firefox, it displays fine and the link works fine. However when attempting to load the page in the infocenter I get the following error:

The reference to entity "id" must end with the ';' delimiter.
It's because of the doctype used. If I delete the doctype declaration the infocenter loads the page fine. Just wondering if this is a bug?

The page looks like this:


<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.1 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

<html>
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1"></meta>
<link rel="stylesheet" href="../../book.css" charset="ISO-8859-1" type="text/css"></link>
<title>Including MathML</title>
</head>

<body>
<h1>Including MathML</h1>
<p>
See:
<a href=" https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?format=multiple&a mp;id=317215">Help content containing MathML is not rendered correctly in Infocenter</a>.
</p>

</body>
</html>


Thoughts?

TIA,
- Ole

It does look like a bug. Documents with a doctype of xhtml get preprocessed by the help system to support inclusion and replacement of content.

The workaround is to use an HTML doctype but in the meantime can you file a bug also?

OK - It's been filed.

https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=321279

Please let me know if there's anything else that would be helpful.

Cheers,

I don't think it's a bug. The '&' character in the bugzilla url
should've been escaped, ie:
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?format=multiple&a mp;amp;id=317215
