Windows Live Writer 2011 beta and IE9 beta test

With this blog post I’m trying to see if also Live Writer 2011 beta has problems with image alt and title being empty.

Alt-text

Writing this post made me find another issue, bug or change. Note that the sorting of the categories is case sensitive.

Update: The bug is also in Live Writer 2011 beta or I would say that the bug is in Internet Explorer beta as it breaks previously working functionality. Note the title tooltip.

And here is the HTML with title and alt added even though they should be empty.

Update: There are also other issues that can happen as seen on Aaron’s Live Writer Blog.

  1. I always love Live Writer. So should I try 2011 or not yet? :)

  2. I have not played around with 2011 enough but expect to find some bugs in it.

  3. I want to track this issue down. Can you let me know what build of Live Writer you are using and what build if IE9. It looks like you are posting to Blogger, correct? Also before you post do you see the Alt Text as blank when you look at the Source tab for the image?

  4. Hi Aaron,
    Thanks a lot for taking a look at this. The build of Live Writer is 14.0.8089.726 en as well as 15.4.3001.809.
    Yes, I post to Blogger and I do see the change to title="title" alt="alt" directly in the Source tab.

  5. Unfortunately the latest beta update 9.0.7930.16406 did not fix these issues.
