bug#18267: eww: should trim <title /> contents, which affects history

Subject: bug#18267: eww: should trim <title /> contents, which affects history

User-agent: Gnus/5.13 (Gnus v5.13) Emacs/24.3 (gnu/linux)

Package:  emacs
Severity: minor

        EWW currently fails to trim any leading and trailing whitespace
        /and/ newline codes off the <title /> contents, as in the
        following (valid) HTML document:

<!DOCTYPE html>
A title with newlines.

        Here, eww-current-title will be "\nA title with newlines.\n",
        which causes the *eww-history* buffer contents to be formatted like:

A title with newlines.

        Which, in turn, causes eww-history-browse to fail (unless used
        on the first line of such an entry), due to the use of

  (let ((history (get-text-property (line-beginning-position) 'eww-history)))
    (unless history
      (error "No history on the current line"))

        I suggest that this issue be resolved as follows:

        • eww-tag-title is changed to strip any [[:blank:]\r\n]+ from
          the <title /> element textual content; (it may also turn any
          embedded [\r\n] codes into ordinary blanks, though it isn’t
          /strictly/ necessary given the rest of the changes below);

        • eww-list-histories turns any control characters in :title into
          something printable (say, using the caret notation; ^J for \n,
          etc.; this doesn’t cover non-ASCII controls, though);

        • the eww-history property is made to cover the whole
          *eww-history* entry, – not just its initial character;
          conversely, eww-history-browse is changed to use (point)
          instead of (line-beginning-position).

        Also, while we’re at it, I suggest getting rid of the
        right-padding of the /last/ (as in: second) field of the history
        records, for it’s entirely unnecessary, and makes copying the
        URIs from *eww-history* harder.

        A possible patch is MIMEd.  (Note that the eww-tag-title change
        looks a bit too verbose, though.)
