[jitsi-dev] Receiving messages wrapped in <font></font>


#1

Hi,

An associate is using Adium on MacOS, and I am using Jitsi
(2.2.4603.9615, x86_64, Fedora 18).

When he sends me messages, they are being wrapped in <FONT> tags:
<FONT>since I am logged into the work side.</FONT>

Any thoughts on why this might be the case? I noticed this with
2.0-4506.10553 as well.

Cheers,

···

Hi,

After some further research, it appears to be a problem in Jitsi,
according to the folks at Adium, related to OTR:
https://trac.adium.im/ticket/6901

Accoding to comment #33:
OTR messages have to be encoded with UTF-8 and may contain HTML markup.
If other clients show these tags literally, then those clients need to
be fixed.

I am not sure what the spec is for OTR, but this sounds reasonable.

Can anyone confirm?

The font tags are visible when you with someone who is using pidgin, too.

Yes, I can confirm this "wrappings" between Jitsi and Adium (Jitsi
latest version 2.3.4714 and Adium 1.5.6).

Interestingly, before starting an OTR-encrypted chat between Adium and
Jitsi (starting OTR from Adium), Jitsi alerts following message:

?OTR?v2? *****@**** has requested an Off-the-Record private
conversation. However, you do not have a plugin to support that. See
http://otr.cypherpunks.ca/ for more information.

So encrypted chats cannot be started from Adium (at the first time), if
I hit the OTR padlock at Jitsi, the OTR session starts and the
Adium-window for fingerprint-authorization pops up from Adium.

The html tags (or however this is called, sorry I dont know) occurs only
in OTR-encrypted chats between Adium and Jitsi, but not in unencrypted
chats.

Hey all,

I just took a look and I see that when messages are encrypted they are
received as a text/plain messages, as adium do not send the xhtml-in
extension which indicates that the message contains html and its type
of text/html. And so Jitsi displays the message correctly as
text/plain as there is no indications for content type.

Well as noted by Eric and I checked the otr v3:
"The plaintext message (either before encryption, or after decryption)
consists of a human-readable message (encoded in UTF-8, optionally
with HTML markup)"

So there is no indications whether the message is plain text or html one.
Hey devs WDYT, should we made all the messages by default text/html and UTF-8?

Regards
