html version of the old freedos - install howto none

Description ishondar 2005-06-16 07:56:04 UTC
I have opened the "FreeDos Install HowTo" Html doc in writer, the comments are 
displayed via a yellow box.
But in this document there is 2 html comments one immediately after the other :

< ! --
first comment
-- >
< ! --
second comment
-- >

Only the first one is viewable with the yellow box...

Moreover, when you export this document to PDF, only the second comment is 
viewable in the PDF document.

Comment 4 ishondar 2005-09-30 12:56:18 UTC
Well, since my first mail, freedos howtos became wiki documents... :(
So the tests were not do with this kind of doc

I will look this week-end if I had kept a copy of the original file...

Comment 7 h.ilter 2005-10-06 11:56:58 UTC
All notes are present but not side by side as it is on the textdocument but
lying upon each other.
HI->PL: Please investigate.
Comment 8 philipp.lohmann 2005-10-07 16:51:06 UTC
pl->fme: The problem in PDF is because the notes in question occupy exactly the
same rectangles; the viewer application lets only one win. Since this problem
seems to be the source of the writer problem (can only see the first note in
writer), also, i think it would be best to catch this pathological case in
writer instead of in PDF export only.

Could you please have a look ?

This Issue requires more information ('needmoreinfo'), but has not been updated
within the last year. Please re-test with one of the latest versions of OOo -
the problem(s) may have already been addressed. Either use the recent stable
or consider trying the new OOo 3 BETA (still in testing):

Please report back the outcome so this Issue may be closed or progressed as
necessary - otherwise it may be Resolved as Invalid in the future. You may also
wish to search for (and note) any duplicates of this Issue that may have
advanced further :

There is now 2 yellow boxes instead of one.
That's better, but there is 3 comments one after the other,
so you expect 3 yellow boxes.

But, still, the only first comment showes its content.

This was tested with OOo 2.3 and OOo 2.4
