Subject [jira] [Commented] (TIKA-692) TikaCLI -x or -h on a Word doc sometimes adds newline after </b> tag
Date Sat, 20 Aug 2011 16:39:28 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TIKA-692?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13088216#comment-13088216

Uwe Schindler commented on TIKA-692:

Jukka, thats the correct way. But in general there is already another issue open to produce
browser-like HTML, where I added the serializer we use here at PANGAEA for our XHTML output.

> When parsing a Word doc where some contiguous text is bolded, due to
> differences in how the user had bolded different parts of the text
> with Word, TikaCLI -x or -h will sometimes generate output like this:
> {noformat}
> <p>F<b>oob</b>a<b>r</b>
> </p>
> {noformat}
> and other times like this (extra newline & 2 adjacent bold sections):
> {noformat}
> <p>F<b>oo</b>
> <b>b</b>a<b>r</b>
> </p>
> {noformat}
> The extra newline in the second example causes browsers (I tried
> Firefox, Safari, Chrome), JTidy and Tika itself to (incorrectly)
> insert a space when rending/extracting text, breaking up the word.
> While this might be technically correct/OK (ie, XML white space rules
> might allow for non-significant space after the </b> within a <p>
> should be ignored), I think we should still fix Tika to not insert
> newlines, if we can.
