Description Unknown 2003-03-13 03:43:07 UTC
(The file attached to 12294 was used to generate this error)
The style tag within the head tags is missing the required type attribute.
While 3.2 did not require a type attribute, it also states that style is a
" holder for the introduction of style sheets..." and "user agents
should hide the contents of these elements."  Since the only version of HTML
that recognizes the style element is 4.0, the 4.0 guidelines should be followed.

Still occurs in OO v1.1b, even when the DTD specified by OO is for
HTML 4.0.

Rick, thank you for this information.

Verified RH 9.0, 1.1 Beta 2.

as specified in

Just curios, why the push to 2.0?  This seems like a simple fix for 1.1.

Since all user agents use CSS by default, P4 seems to me the correct
Comment 9 Unknown 2003-08-19 19:04:42 UTC
Just beware that while the user-agents you have used may have
defaulted to text/css, this may not always be the case as the
specification doesn't define a default.
"This attribute specifies the style sheet language of the element's
contents and overrides the default style sheet language. The style
sheet language is specified as a content type (e.g., "text/css").
Authors must supply a value for this attribute; there is no default
value for this attribute."

This bug still exists in OO 2.0.4. Is it such a fuzz to change this so that it
saves a HTML file like this:


Please fix this simple bug.
Comment 13 box 2007-09-03 08:39:52 UTC
This bug seems to be fixed in OO 2.2.1. When generating HTML output, this output
now is W3C valid (the <STYLE TYPE="TEXT/CSS"> has been added).

Please set this bug to RESOLVED.
