Let's try this again, this time with the text:
I have a server in my domain called 'chat' and have a Tomcat server running
there on port 8081. On that Tomcat server I have web application the provides
an RSS feed. The URL I normally use is:
This page is a form allowing me to select the feeds I want from the server.
This works correctly. Now when I tell the server that parameters for the RSS I
start getting issues. The RSS query is:
What happens is that I get told:
The page you opened redirected you to a page that isnt supported by Safari.
Safari cant open the page chat:8081/ds/rss.do?report=visits because it
cannot redirect to locations starting with chat:.
This is strange since this page works correctly in Firefox (Mac, Linux,
Windows), IE6 and Opera. Using wget also shows no redirection happening. I am
suspecting that this is something is Safari/Webkit going funny.
A few things I have tried:
1 - changing application/rss+xml -> application/xml -- same behaviour
2 - changing application/rss+xml -> text/plain -- same behaviour
3 - changing <rss version="2.0"> to <xxx version="2.0"> -- same behaviour
4 - doing both 3 and 4 -- URL doesn't get mangled
5 - changing host name to 192.168.2.101 or fully qualified chat.mydomain.com
-- URL doesn't get mangled
This affects Safari 3 and the latest WebKit build (2007-07-18) on the Mac. It
also seems focused on RSS being the document type.
