*** aelkner has joined #schooltool22:46
fsufitchaelkner, hello22:47
aelknerhey fsufitch22:47
fsufitchaelkner, so how's life?22:48
aelknerok.  i was just checking in before heading out to visit my Grandmother.  Any quick questions?22:49
fsufitchyeah, my ftests are being as stupid as a monkey swinging on a branch made out of uncooked spaghetti22:49
fsufitchwhat are <BLANKLINE> elements?22:49
fsufitchmy ftests should be working, but the ... things don't seem to overlook the blankline stuff too22:50
aelkneryou need then to start off the browser.contents results22:50
fsufitchbut the file i'm returning turns all of my <tal:block> stuff into <BLANKLINE>22:51
fsufitchso i have tens of <BLANKLINE> tags scattered across my page22:51
fsufitch*i tried converting all of them to <span>22:51
fsufitchbut now i'm getting a keyerror from some place22:52
aelknerit's always really touch to figure out why browser.contents doesn't match.22:52
aelknerthe recommonded method is to look at what the browser has in it using the following:22:52
aelkner    >>> from zope.testing.server import startServer22:53
aelkner    >>> startServer(http, browser.url, 'manager', 'schooltool')22:53
aelknerthis will throw you into the browser so that you can look for yourself what the contents are22:53
aelknerit suspends make ftest, so you'll need to ctr-c to start again22:54
aelknerbut you can look in firefox at what you got22:54
aelknersometimes that helps22:54
fsufitchwell, it dumps all the source into the terminal when it crashes22:55
aelknerso you understand where to put the two lines, right before your browser.contents test22:55
fsufitchso i know what the webpage contains...22:55
aelknertrue, but it isn't always easy to find the difference looking at the html22:56
fsufitchanyway, now that i'm using the <span>s there's a keyerror, which i know how to solve22:56
fsufitchbut if i have more trouble, i'll look at your method22:56
aelknerno prob.  got to go.22:56
fsufitchOH there it is22:57
fsufitchi had repeat instead of tal:repeat22:57
fsufitchi'm stupid22:57
fsufitchok, have fun at your grandmother's22:57
