Description Purodha Blissenbach 2008-02-22 09:09:05 UTC
There is a series of likely related problems in the Georgian (Kartuli) Wikipedia that different browsers treat differently.

Mozilla seems to be pretty graceful.

Internet Explorer does not show a cursor for editing but you can partially navigate with tabs and sometimes edits can be saved, but not always. Sometimes you see no response, i.e. endless wait. Also, it complains about a javascript error at line 528, character position 2, missing property and invalid parameter. The error message initially appears with each edit page, an randomly reappears when you try to move the cursor, althoug no cursor is to be seen.

Opera always displays some text in the background area around the logo, with the monobook skin, which looks like source code, including strings or fragmants like: "მება | დახმარება (აფანჯარაში) <nowiki></nowiki> " or "...ქმება | დახმარება (ახალ ფანჯარაში) <noinclude></ რედაქტირება: მომხმარე..." and "...ა | დახმარება (ახალ ფანჯარაში) includeonly> <br /> რედაქტირება: მომხმარებელი განხილვა:..." and "...ხალ ფანჯარაში) {{DEFAULTSORT:}}" and so on. Many links, when clicked, do not end up where intended but rather yield a seach page. Editing does not work, edited or new pages cannot be saved, you end up on unrelated pages or on search pages.

I believe that these problem may likely be caused by broken html or broken javascript code, but I did not have the time yet to investigate further.

I don't see an of the problems you report in your original post, in either IE 6 or 7. The validation errors come from [[MediaWiki:Copyrightwarning]] and [[MediaWiki:Edittools]] and should be fixed there.

Perhaps the errors you saw during editing were a transient problem due to editing of site JS or interface text, now corrected.
