Description: ------------ The presence of a tab before the # character instead of a space causes Text::Wiki to generate invalid unbalanced Xhtml. Test script: --------------- <?php require_once 'PEAR.php'; require_once 'Text/Wiki.php'; $source = <<<EOS Keeping copies of your postings * To create a list of all postings made during the semester: \t# click on ‘All My Posts’ \t# you can then print them or download them as a file on your computer. EOS; $wiki = Text_Wiki::singleton('Default'); $wiki->setFormatConf('Xhtml', array('translate'=>2, 'quotes'=>'ENT_COMPAT', 'charset'=>'UTF-8')); echo "Bad output\n", $wiki->transform($source, 'Xhtml'); $newsource = str_replace("\t", ' ', $source); echo "Good output\n", $wiki->transform($newsource, 'Xhtml'); ?> Expected result: ---------------- The output following Bad output should be the same as the output following Good output and be balanced Xhtml. Actual result: -------------- The two outputs are different, and the Bad output is invalid unbalanced Xhtml.

This happend because the default Prefilter turns \t into ' ' (4 spaces) and the List parser expects an exact number of spaces to be used.

This bug has been fixed in CVS. If this was a documentation problem, the fix will appear on by the end of next Sunday (CET). If this was a problem with the website, the change should be live shortly. Otherwise, the fix will appear in the package's next release. Thank you for the report and for helping us make PEAR better. Please test with various lists.
