Dialog demo html fails on Internet Explorer

Reported by: cwu03d Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone: none
Component: ui.dialog Version: 1.10.1
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:

Although the online demos for dialog samples work all all browsers, the standalone demo fails working on Internet explorer ( I used I.E. 10 on Windows 8). All sample html files under Web\\jquery-ui-1.10.1.custom\\development-bundle\\demos\\dialog will not properly show UI effect.

Cause: All demo html files for dialog has this sentence:

<meta charset="utf-8" >

The missing close tag will cause I.E. 10 behave improperly.

Fix: Add the closing tag for meta fixed problem:

<meta charset="utf-8" />


Please check all the demo html for the same case, apply fix if that is the case.

This is perfectly valid and works everywhere, as you've noted. Perhaps you're changing something in your local settings, like forcing XHTML.

scott.gonzalez is somehow arrogant and irresponsible. Why don't download the zip file, extract to some location, then open any of the html files with I.E, see what happens?

Please also compare the demo html source and the online version, you will see the online version meta tag is closed, as <meta charset="utf-8" />

but the ones from downloaded zip file doesn't.

As a software engineer, I have handled a of bugs. But never to rush to close any bug without investigation. Sorry for you guys.

Arrogance and irresponsibility (and a quick trigger finger) are important qualities. We'll pretend for a while that I've never opened any of our demo files in IE 10, and that none of our millions of users have either. Does fail for you?
