Hi guys, have had a look around about this problem, found [url=http://silverstripe.com/site-builders-forum/flat/74605]this forum thread[/url] and [url=http://open.silverstripe.com/ticket/2529]this ticked[/url].

I'm seeing four characters output before all other html under certain browsers.

Importantly, I'm also seeing this at silverstripe.com through IE7.

It's a wierd bug - but if I go to silverstripe.com with IE7, the html looks like this:

5958
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.1//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml11/DTD/xhtml11.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en" >
<head>
<base href="http://silverstripe.com/" />

But through FF3 I don't see the "5958".

The issue is breaking my website at [url]http://all.or.nothing.net.nz[/url] - it seem to be fine from home on Ubuntu with FF3, but from a winXP machine it's broken in both IE7 and FF3 (although at least IE7 will display it - FF3 just throws an XML parsing error). I'm using basically the latest daily build.

This is very urgent - it's breaking your own site after all. If I go to the silverstripe.com community page it can't load the CSS either (screenshot attached) -- I assume that characters break the base ref tag, so it can't find the css any more - at least at silverstripe.com there is some styling.

The ticket has been open since June too and it hasn't been fixed in the trunk.

Thanks

Note that I've tried the silverstripe site on a number of different machines, same issue. I'm sure it's not just me seeing this :)

Also seeing it on Scottius' new site:

[url]http://www.geobase.info/[/url].

I'll try to attach a screen shot.

It occurred to me that I've only seen this when viewing SS sites through a firewall. Don't know how that could make a difference though.

Screen shot from GeoBase
--edit: ok, that didn't work, but there is definitely an issue.
