Talk:Comparison of layout engines (XHTML)

VoiceXML not supported by Presto? Isn't that XML+V or whatever Opera 8 has? Should this be noted in table?
- Sorry. I've forgotton to mark it as yes. I know it supports VoiceXML. Fixed. --minghong 05:16, 5 Jun 2005 (UTC)
Safari (WebCore) doesn't like for text/xml
When an XHTML document is served with text/xml Safari will complain if it contains an entity, giving an error message at the top of the page for each entity (probably others not specifically defined in XML), so I'd say it parses it as XML without checking the doctype and then renders it as XHTML. ~~StarkRG
- What about application/xml? And what about the latest version (2.0)? --minghong 05:16, 5 Jun 2005 (UTC)
- I now updated according to result in W3C test. Please do update if you have access to latest versions of the browsers. --minghong 06:02, 5 Jun 2005 (UTC)
KHTML and application/xhtml+xml
As the table says, KHTML treats application/xhtml+xml as HTML, not as XHTML. KHTML uses its tag soup parser. This is surely a serious flaw. But why is the table cell coloured green? I think it should be yellow. -- molily 15:07, 21 February 2006 (UTC)
Trident and XHTML 1.1 as application/xml
This article says it talks about XHTML 1.1 and that Trident renders XHTML 1.1 as XML when the MIME type is application/xml or text/xml. However it has an XML processor bug that prevents XHTML 1.1 from being rendered except when served as text/html. Note that W3C tests are using XHTML 1.0 Strict as the DOCTYPE. My opinion is that either the article should state that it talks about XHTML 1.0 Strict or note that Trident doesn't support XHTML 1.1 when it's served as application/xml or text/xml --220.127.116.11 13:21, 20 May 2006 (UTC)
- I have just tested this myself and IE really seems to parse the DTD. You're correct, I agree. Grey 23:36, 27 August 2006 (UTC)
xhtml on trident/IE
what does the media type things mean? this should be clarified for people not xhtml savvy. does this mean that an xhtml doc will not run on trident/IE perfectly? or only w/ applications that are used to make xhtml docs? 18.104.22.168 14:16, 26 August 2006 (UTC)
- To be really useful, XHTML must be served with an XHTML/XML media type (i.e. if you want to include MathML or SVG content directly). IE does treat XHTML as XML, though, so most things you are common with won't work. E.g. <title/>, <meta/>, <link/>, <style/>, <script/>,... tags fulfill no useful function (as far as I can tell, at least). Plus, you will only see an XML tree (i.e. instead of a rendered page) if you don't provide a XML style-sheet at the beginning of your page.
Serving up XHTML as "text/html" leaves you without any benefits of XHTML, so you could as well use HTML. Grey 00:35, 28 August 2006 (UTC)
opera with userJS = partly MathML support
I think it should be mentioned in the article that a userJS exists for opera, that allows some MathML stuff. The script can be found here: http://xml-maiden.com/userjs/mathml/ but what is your oppinion? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 11:08, 24 January 2007 (UTC).
Add/remove engines discussion
There is a discussion going on at Talk:Comparison of layout engines (Cascading Style Sheets)#Adding new engines regarding which engines should be added to/removed from the comparison pages. Requesting the participation of any interested parties. --Gyrobo (talk) 02:24, 18 February 2010 (UTC)
Move discussion in progress
There is a move discussion in progress on Talk:Comparison of web browser engines which affects this page. Please participate on that page and not in this talk page section. Thank you. —RMCD bot 15:45, 7 September 2012 (UTC)
