Summary0000463: 'new-look' Register: full-save fails
DescriptionNetSurf 2.0 (Dev) (11 Sep 2008 21:45) r5304

When any 'new-look' Register news-page (eg http://www.theregister.co.uk/2008/09/17/reiss_leaves_rs/ ) is full-saved, the file version of the page does not display correctly.

This occurs because the source html of the page contains
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="http://www.theregister.co.uk/style_picker/design"> which NetSurf fails to convert into a local link, although the css file 'style_picker/design' _is_ saved as '36d177d8', or whatever.


Additional Informationold_coaster added a note on Thu Sep 18 15:53:03 2008

To see the problem, using r5369:

1 full-save any news page from the Register,
2 take the computer off-line,
3 load the file copy of the Register page.

You will find that the formatting of the file copy page is bizarre.

Step 2, above, is necessary to prevent NetSurf loading the CSS file from the net (in the file copy html, the link to the CSS file still points to the net, instead of the file copy of the CSS file).

I cannot reproduce this problem (r5369).

Checked with NS 1700 jsoff and
The problem is still reproducible, as described in 'Additional information' above. I should add that it's also necessary to clear the NS cache, to avoid loading a local copy of the CSS file.

This bug is still present, tested with NerSurf 3.4 0002652


The HTML contains :-

 <LINK rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="http://www.theregister.co.uk/style_picker/design?j">

The saved css appears to be unused.
