Issues with #259

Postby Telcontar » Sun Sep 09, 2012 6:55 pm UTC

Comic #259, "Clichéd Exchanges", has a couple problems related to the é (I'm using Firefox 14). One, the text at the very top of the browser reads "xkcd: Clichd Exchanges" without any e or é, and two, the alt text displays the HTML code for the é (that is, é) rather than the letter. Do others have this issue, and if so could it be fixed at some point? Thanks!

15.0.1 does not have this issue (I've just checked) on the alt text, but it is still present in the title of the page (see code)

Code: Select all

<title>xkcd: Clichd Exchanges</title>
.

Perhaps I could suggest an upgrade as a workaround to the first?

I have issues with not linking to the page in question.

Title error can be fixed by changing that line of code into this:

Code: Select all

<title>xkcd: Clich&eacute;d Exchanges</title>



It's weird you don't have the alt-text problem, because that seems to be a HTML problem as well.

Code: Select all

<img src="http://imgs.xkcd.com/comics/cliched_exchanges.png" title="It&#39;s like they say, you gotta fight fire with clich&amp;eacute;s." alt="Clich&amp;eacute;d Exchanges" />


You can fix it by changing it into this:

Code: Select all

<img src="http://imgs.xkcd.com/comics/cliched_exchanges.png" title="It&#39;s like they say, you gotta fight fire with clich&eacute;s." alt="Clich&eacute;d Exchanges" />
