Observed by Kenneth when editing bug topics, as "No doubt it is the Wysiwyg that toasts the bug items. Worst thing is that not only is the formatting totally destroyed but text is deleted also in some cases so we loose valuable information from the bug items."

However I see no evidence of lost information.

The span that represents a verbatim block in IE is getting expanded to cover the entire remaining text in the topic when edited in IE.

Investigating the cause.

Thisis not specific to IE; I can reproduce the problem with FF. It looks like the HTML::Parser is failing, for some reason.


The example of this problem where also text disappeared is http://develop.twiki.org/~twiki4/cgi-bin/rdiff/Bugs/Item4737?rev1=28;rev2=27

I corrected the parser. I have good reason to believe that this problem is also indicated as the cause of several of your other reports. Please try and reproduce the problems with the checked-in code, so I can see what other problems exist.
