           Summary: Submit button doesn't work when page is served with
                    Content-type: application/xhtml+xml
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 523.x (Safari 3)
          Platform: Macintosh Intel
               URL: http://44clarence.com/photos/index2.xxxx
        OS/Version: Mac OS X 10.5
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: Major
          Priority: P1
         Component: Forms
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: darin-webkit at 44clarence.com

I have created a stripped-down test page at:


(The .xxxx extension is to ensure that the extension isn't affecting the
behavior; it turns out the behavior is the same, regardless of whether I give
it the extension *.html, *.xhtml or *.xxxx.)

When using the version of Safari that shipped with OS X 10.5 (3.0.4 -- 5523.10)
the Submit button on the above page does nothing when the page is served with
the (correct) Content-type of:


However, the Submit button works properly when the page is served with the
incorrect Content-type:


This is true regardless of whether the Content-type is set via the web server
(by associating the content type with the extension, for example) or manually
(by setting the header information using PHP, for example). Note that the
page's extension does not affect the behavior, only the Content-type header
(which is as it should be). I tried changing the extension to *.html, *.xhtml,
and finally *.xxxx to ensure that it was in no way affecting the behavior.

Note that this page is a valid XHTML 1.1 (Strict) document and it passes the
W3C's validator.

The page works correctly in Firefox (on both Windows and Macintosh), Opera,
Opera Mini, Internet Explorer, and even the Palm Blazer web browser, among

The above is a stripped-down version of the original page located at:
