RE: [xml] HTMLparser: body/noscript mismatch?

Thanks for your response!

Yes, that seems to be the case. I'm not particularly fond of <noscript>
either but there are some applications using it. If the <body> tag is
implied by the parser it makes the page impossible to render.

I'll try to check the source to add the noscript to the html level. As I
understand the following link:

the <noscript> block can be a child of <html>.

Hi there!

I'm stuck with a <body>/<noscript> HTMLparser mismatch and 
I don't know if
I'm seeing things wrong. It would be great if anybody could 
clarify. It
seems that the body/noscript blocks are parsed in the wrong order.

I put the following HTML code into the libxml2-2.6.16 HTMLparser:

<meta>http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">
<body text="#000000">
anything else

Using the SAX interface for the HTMLparser I get the 
following calls:

start html
  start head
    start meta
    end meta
    start title
    end title
  end head
  start body         (<---- expecting noscript here)
    start noscript   (<---- expecting body here)
    end noscript
  end body
  start body
    start p
    end p
  end body
end html

The <body> and <noscript> blocks are confused and the 
result is not very
much appreciated by browsers. Am I missing something on my 
side or is this
unwanted behaviour of the HTMLparser?

  The HTML parser seems to consider that only head and body 
are allowed
as child of html, and so it opens a body when seeing the noscript,

Any hints would be helpful, thanks.

  First time I hear about noscript...
