Description Abel Braaksma 2015-04-07 01:37:50 UTC
The expected serialized output of this test ends with (on one line):

   </ul></font><p><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" color="#000000">Some text in a paragraph</font></p>

and our output ends with (newline after </ul>):

</font><p><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" color="#000000">Some text in a paragraph</font></p>

I believe these are both valid renditions according to the serialization standard for HTML and indent="yes", which is what this test seems to test.

Indentation is always tricky to test. In this case, I would simply solve it by adding an alternative outcome, though that is not ideal, because another processor might do it differently, or a later version of an existing processor might change its indentation and whitespace generation algorithm.

Currently fixed as proposed, but leaving it open for comments for now.
Comment 2 Michael Kay 2015-04-07 08:06:24 UTC
This test case wasn't designed to test serialization. In such cases it's usually best to replace the expected result with a logical test on the result tree contents rather than a serialization assertion. Alternatively, remove the indent="yes", which makes the results a bit more predictable.
Comment 3 Abel Braaksma 2015-04-07 20:56:36 UTC
Thanks, I wasn't sure because it seemed a test originating from an internal bug report.

Fixed as proposed. Indentation is now off, resulting in easier comparison.
