Description Mathias Bynens 2010-08-03 12:33:11 PDT
Here's a "demo" page where the issue occurs: http://jsperf.com/slugs Note that this document validates as HTML5.

I wasn't sure what to do with this, so I asked #whatwg: http://krijnhoetmer.nl/irc-logs/whatwg/20100803#l-952

# [21:20] <Matjas> What is up with this? Web Inspector gives the following error: "<noscript> is not allowed inside <p>" Screenshot: http://i.imgur.com/rQSRl.png  
# [21:21] <Matjas> But the HTML validates and everything… Is this is a Webkit bug or am I doing something wrong?  
# [21:21] <annevk5> sounds like a WebKit bug  
# [21:23] <Matjas> annevk5: http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/interact/scripts.html#h-18.3.1 says "<!ELEMENT NOSCRIPT - - (%block;)+ "  
# [21:23] <Matjas> (That's from HTML4 though)  
# [21:24] <annevk5> HTML4 does not seem relevant  
# [21:24] <annevk5> and that does not tell anything about what <p> allows  
# [21:24] <annevk5> though I guess if <noscript> just allows %block; <p> does not allow <noscript>  
# [21:24] <annevk5> but still a bug in WebKit

I can reproduce this with both Safari/WebKit 5 and ToT. Indeed, this seems to be something HTML4 didn't allow.
Comment 3 Adam Barth 2010-08-04 09:43:02 PDT
This is likely to get fixed today or tomorrow when we turn on the HTML5 tree builder.
Comment 4 Peter Beverloo 2010-08-05 03:52:28 PDT
I can confirm Adam's comment, the error no longer appears.

Adam, do we want to make and land a regression test?
Comment 7 Adam Barth 2010-08-05 11:46:47 PDT
I believe this case is already tested in the html5lib test suite, but we can add another test if you want to be sure.
Comment 8 Adam Barth 2010-08-05 12:31:41 PDT
Reopening to add a test.
