           Summary: base64Decode() patch
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 528+ (Nightly build)
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: WebCore Misc.
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: ppedriana at gmail.com

The base64Decode function doesn't follow the Base64 convention regarding
unrecognized encoding characters, as stated in RFC 2045:

    All line breaks or other characters not found in 
    Table 1 must be ignored by decoding software.

Similary, there is corresponding code comments in some WebKit code:

    // Use the GLib Base64 if available, since WebCore's decoder isn't
    // general-purpose and fails on Acid3 test 97 (whitespace).

This patch fixes the base64Decode function in this respect.
