Failing to support the <script> element was not really a bug. That's the key problem with HTML, adding elements or otherwise changing any content model requires changing all implementations so they can still understand the structure of documents (do you parse it like <title> or perhaps more like <plaintext>, does its start-tag imply </p> and should you expect an end-tag or not, and so on; in case of <script> the question was whether to renders its contents, if any, if you don't recognize the element). -- Björn Höhrmann · mailto:email@example.com · http://bjoern.hoehrmann.de Am Badedeich 7 · Telefon: +49(0)160/4415681 · http://www.bjoernsworld.de 25899 Dagebüll · PGP Pub.
