Registration Page xml div and fieldset error when page has incorrect entries.

Reported by Andy Robertson | October 9th, 2008 @ 02:21 PM | in 1.2

The kete I'm using does not use graphical chapcha's so the construction of the signup page may be different than if it where using the graphic captchas.

A user makes a mistake on the registration/sign up page either by incorrectly feeding in the captcha answer or by entering a duplicate of one of the fields already in use on the kete server. For example if I try and register as andy_robertson twice.

The registration page attempts to redisplay adding in extra content to point out the problem. Unfortunatly the formatting that is added causes IE and Firefox to halt with XML errors. In IE it gives.

The XML page cannot be displayed Cannot view XML input using XSL style sheet. Please correct the error and then click the Refresh button, or try again later.

End tag 'div' does not match the start tag 'fieldset'. Error processing resource 'http://ketetest.peoplesnetworknz.info/sit...


The same happens in Firefox 3.0.3

XML Parsing Error: mismatched tag. Expected: . Location: http://ketetest.peoplesnetworknz... Line Number 163, Column 3: --^

Attempting to do the same operation on kete.net.nz gives different errors. If I do the same operation with firefox is correctly displays the error message at the top of the screen that I have errors on the page.

There were problems with the following fields:

* Security code : Your security question answer failed - please try again.
* Login has already been taken

If I do the same with IE7 on kete.net.nz I get a page of XML.

I suspect the extra error reporting to the page is adding tags or not enough tags or not closing tags soon enough/late enough (I'm not an html/xml native reader). My reasoning for the difference between my site ketetest.peoplesnetworknz.info and kete.net.nz is that the kete.net.nz is using the graphical captcha section.

Attached is the IE7 page source.

If I feed this page through validator.w3.org I get 11 errors.
