I'm currently extending one of my extensions with a preferences dialog.
In that dialog I use a description in which I want to use some HTML
formatting. It looks more or less like this:
Now if I display the dialog. It displays the text correctly but it
connects normal and hello to one word. This looks quite ugly :(.
Partial solution to this is to use margin in the style by adding margins
as in the code below
<html:i style="margin-left: 5px; margin-right: 5px;">hello
but because mozilla still considers normal and hello as one word, word
breaking can be ugly.
On webpages already my first code example works correctly. So this is a
bug in mozilla isn't it??
Anybody knows a solution???
Another thing that doesn't work correctly in Mozilla Firebird 0.7+
(build of 6 Dec) are links.
For info go to
<html:a target="_blank" href="http://mypage.com">
It works fine in mozilla 1.4.1. Known bug??
BTW I'm using the linux versions of Mozilla and Firebird
