For a week or two i have this error… any ideas how to manage it? In the error.log he shows this…
Found an unusual tag @ 8498… (t" tabindex=“3” value=“Sign In Securely >”>)

I’m using Version 0.9.5 (ebay.de)… perhaps ebay.de changed something on their page?

Greetings,
If it’s not giving any exceptions, and the program is basically working, then that’s fine. It’s just that quoted strings with ‘>’ in them are potential HTML issues, because eBay often makes basic HTML mistakes like not closing their quotes.

In general, when they don’t close their quotes, JBidwatcher (and any browser) has to back-track and figure out which tag it was that they failed to close their quotes in, so it keeps track of which tags were ‘unusual’ (I used to put ‘suspicious’, but the wording scared people unnecessarily, so I changed it).

It doesn’t need to be seen by everyone, so I’ll probably pull the text in the next version, so it only shows up when the debugging checkbox is on.

It’s harmless, however.
