    This howto post is unreadable in the NNTP side of the forum. It comes like
    code.

    Code:

    You'd have to come on the web browser to view it. It's html/css based.

    All that should be automatically stripped by the gateway before sending to
    the nntp side.

    Oh I see, a bug......... Hmm.... well IIRC the forum where I posted it is the only forum which allows parsing css and html. And since it's a locked forum (so only authors of vetted howto-s can post to it.) it's not likely to be a problem on a continuing basis. The thing to weigh up in this issue is the time required to correct the bug and force the gateway to behave correctly --versus-- the frequency of the events which so far have been only once since the forum began (I think no one else has bothered to write in html).

    In that case I would leave the gateway as is.

    since the entire openSUSE web forums are written in html, i have to
    wonder what it is about this one page which caused it to not be
    recognized as html and auto-stripped down to text (as are all others
    during the http>nttp process)

    oh! i see...as far as i can tell this how-to is only page which uses
    <* style=*><span> tags ('span style' and 'div style'

    apparently the gateway [or whatever normally does it] does not 'know'
    to strip the out the style tags..

    or, perhaps the tool used to generate such pages could be set to not
    use them...i wonder what tool was used..

    DenverD the web forums are written in php -- not (x)html.

    But yes, the gateway didn't handle the code tags (i.e. didn't strip them out). I've thought about this. The entire forums are set to not expect any xhtml or css code input via the GUI editors that web clients use. So when some comes their way they think it's text and let it through.

    The page I wrote and posted works fine in the one forum that I have enabled for html/css for web browsers. It's a read-only forum. There won't be any more put on that forum by any one else except perhaps ultra-occasionally by me.
    There are 950000 posts, only one of which was written in html. An oversight but I'm not planning to rewrite it. Don't sweat it because it's a super rare event.

    look at the source code of any page and you will see

    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
    "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

    yes, it is served as php, but it is html.
