Subject [jira] Commented: (TAPESTRY-2111) Remove HTML comments around JavaScript.
Date Sat, 02 Feb 2008 02:31:10 GMT

Kalle Korhonen commented on TAPESTRY-2111:
------------------------------------------

Agree. It's not needed and can be harmful because in XHTML mode browser should actually *ignore*
Javascript. Some resources:
http://javascript.about.com/library/blxhtml.htm
http://www.netmechanic.com/news/vol6/javascript_no12.htm
http://javascript.about.com/od/reference/a/accessibility_2.htm

Note that the latest browsers that didn't understand script tags at all were Netscape1 and
IE 2 browsers, and nobody has been using those for years.

> Tapestry's generated JavaScript generates HTML comments around its JavaScript.  While
this served a purpose with older browsers, it really doesn't do much with anything semi-recent.
 These browsers, if they don't support JavaScript, know not to render the text inside the
script tag anyway.  My guess is that the only browsers that this would be useful for are also
those that look for the "language" attribute, rather than the "text" attribute of the script
tag, so they're dead in the water anyway.
> On top of all this, there have been unconfirmed reports that the comments can mess up
IE7 in certain situations.
