LO78876: PLAIN TEXT MAILS WITH <PRE> TAGS WITH SPACES ON THE END OF LINES CAUSES THE TEXT TO APPEAR SMALLER THAN NECESSARY
Closed as program error.
When a plain text message with <pre> tags utilized is delivered to the device, the device will display exactly what it is given (as per design of the <pre>). If the lines in the mail have been generated with many spaces on the end, those spaces are shown too. When a person looks at the mail, it may look like it is just displaying the text in a narrower column rather than using the whole screen, but in reality, it is using the whole screen and you just can't see all the spaces that are there (but they really are there). Technically, this mail is being displayed as designed/correctly. That means that the real fix would be to fix whatever created the mail messages with spaces on the ends of the lines in the first place. However, Traveler put in a workaround in APAR LO67629 in a previous release to strip off the spaces at the end of lines in <pre> sections to avoid this display issue. In fixing some other issues, this workaround was lost and is no longer in place. This PMR is being used to open a new APAR to put the workaround back into the Traveler code.
Plain text mail using a pre HTML tag may show abnormally small on a mobile device. This only happens if there is lots of whitespace characters included inside the pre tags.
The Notes Traveler server has been updated to work around this issue and send content to the device in a way that will disply in a more readable fashion.
This fix is included in Notes Traveler 9.0.1 IF4 and 22.214.171.124 IF5 and all future releases. For the latest Notes Traveler maintenance release information please see this technote: http://www.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg24019529
