I've had similar problems in the past, but none quite like this. I
received a message which has only a single part with the first several
Content-Type: text/html; charset=utf-8; charset=utf-8
<html><head><meta http-equiv=3D"Content-Type" content=3D"text/html;
=3Dutf-8" /><meta http-equiv=3D"Content-Style-Type"
<meta name=3D"generator" content=3D"Aspose.Words for .NET 184.108.40.206"
</title></head><body><div><p style=3D"margin:0pt; orphans:0;
an style=3D"color:#000000; font-family:Arial;
When I select the message, balsa just hangs, using 100% of the cpu.
I've left it over half an hour, with no change. The entire message is
only about 17K.
I manually edited the message to add a text/plain mime section, which
balsa displays just fine. If I have balsa save the html part, it saves
the entire <html>...</html> as a single line, with no white space
whatsoever (no spaces, no CR, no LF.) Various browsers have no problem
displaying it - pretty much just text, nothing really fancy.
Before I complain to the person who sent it, I'd love to be able to
tell them what, exactly is wrong with their software, other than it
doesn't include any doc or dtd type declaration. (I know I can point
them to http://validator.w3.org.)
I'd also love for balsa to be able to do something other than
apparently spin its wheels, but I'm not sure how to figure out exactly
where it's getting lost.
Thanks for any suggestions.
