Web Application Designer output in Firefox



I know web templates can be viewed in Internet Explorer, but I am trying to view them in Firefox. The reason I am doing this is that I have discovered Firebug, which seems like a great little tool to use to finetune my web pages.

The problem that I have though, is that the WAD output of a template doesn't seem to be correct for viewing the page in Firefox.

As an example, I have a toolbar with a bunch of hyperlinked images. The HTML that gets generated is wrong, as my images are not hyperlinked, and in fact the hyperlink is rendered as part of the HTML, which creates all sorts of problems.

Does anyone know if web templates should be able to viewed in Firefox, and if so, is there anything special I need to do in order to get this right.

Here's an example of the sort of thing I am trying to do in the WAD:

<a >
  <bi:attribute name="href" >
      <bi:TARGET_DATA_PROVIDER_REF value="DP_1" />
        <bi:TARGET_DATA_PROVIDER_REF index="1" value="DP_1" />
  <img alt="Go Back One Step" src="/irj/servlet/prt/portal/prtroot/ Icon.gif" border="0" />

That results in the following HTML:

<a href="%3Cwbr%3E%3C/span%3E%3Cspan%20class=" urlinstd="">
  <span class="urLinStd">" &gt;
  <img alt="Go Back One Step" src="/irj/servlet/prt/portal/prtroot/" border="0">

As you can see, the HTML is horribly formed.

Originally I used the BWMIMEREP shortcut for the image name, but that got completely lost on Firefox, so I have resorted to trying to use the URL as above.
