Description Marco Marsala 2005-05-30 18:16:55 UTC
Try this page:
then click che XHTML validation at bottom of the page. The page wouldn't 
validate because of character encoding problem. If I manually select a 
character encoding that validator would accept (iso), the page doesn't validate 
as xhtml 1.0.
Comment 1 Olivier Thereaux 2005-06-02 06:14:01 UTC
results invalid because of <strong>...</strong> marking the position of the error cutting in the middle of 
a unicode char.

Comment 2 Marco Marsala 2005-06-02 12:57:09 UTC
Now the validator says:

Sorry, I am unable to validate this document because on lines 523, 537, 544, 
558, 565, 579, 586, 600, 621, 628, 649 it contained one or more bytes that I 
cannot interpret as utf-8 (in other words, the bytes found are not valid values 
in the specified Character Encoding). Please check both the content of the file 
and the character encoding indication. 

and now I much much slower to load the page! (before was almost immediately)
Comment 3 Olivier Thereaux 2005-06-02 22:48:12 UTC
Yes, the validator says there are encoding errors, and that's precisely what bug 921 is about, so we will 
track this issue in bug 921. Please do not reopen this issue unless you have proof that the two issues 
are different.
