|0000235||Documentation, Examples, and Web Site||Writing with Inform||public||2010-08-05 19:03||2010-10-29 09:23|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version||6F95|
|Summary||0000235: Layout problem in "Writing with Inform": no wrap-up of text|
|Description||In Chapter 9.2 (Time / Awarding points) ...|
The beta notice ("In previous builds, Inform had a special phrase for adding to the score..."): the box that follows (grey with dotted red border) does not wrap up the text so, in order to view the full box, I have to expand the documentation window.
That's all ... just a style-sheet problem.
|Tags||No tags attached.|
|PS: I provided Chapter 9.2 as an example, but the no wrap-up problem shows up with all Beta notes in boxes in the book!|
Actually, this is a problem with the Windows IDE. The text is wrapping, but its enclosing box extends slightly off the right side of the screen, and so words are sometimes cut off.
Jesse, could you move this to the IDE project?

The underlying problem here is that the WebBrowser control used to show HTML (which is effectively Internet Explorer) is in IE5 quirks mode. This is because the HTML for the documentation doesn't have a "!doctype" declaration at the start.
Really all the HTML in Inform 7 should have a "!doctype" (as should all HTML these days): IE isn't alone into going into a "quirks" mode if one isn't found.
The solution is to go through the indoc and i7 sources for any places where HTML files are started: searching for "<html><head>" is a good start. Before the "<html>" bit a "!doctype" declaration should be written out (HTML4 should be good enough), so that the HTML looks like
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd"> [^]
This should be done for all platforms, not just Windows. As it involves changing indoc and the i7 compiler, I'm re-assigning to Graham.
|Note that Mantis has slightly messed up the declaration of the doctype example, but hopefully it should be clear what needs to be done.|
|I have applied the 4.01 transitional doctype to all the HTML pages seen within Inform - documentation, index, problems, run-time problems, and so on.|
