Created attachment 287650
gzipped tar file which displays the error

When the input file contains an explicit template specialization, and GENERATE_TREEVIEW is specified, the HTML generated for the specialization contains an invalid element name in the footer part; the class name in one of the elements is literally "Test< char const* >", and of course, "< char const* >" looks like an element to the browser. (The error is in navigation information in the footer, which won't be displayed.)

How this is handles depends on the browser: IE goes ahead and displays the page normally; Firefox just displays an "XML Parsing Error", and nothing else, and Chrome displays the page correctly, with a box with an error message at the top.

I've attached a gzipped tar file with the Doxygen configuration file (.dox) and a very simplified version of a header file (.hh) which triggers the error.

Hi James,

The file you attached seem to be corrupted. Can you attach a corrected version?

Nevermind, I was able to reproduce the issue from the description given.

Should be fixed in the next GIT update.

bug if you think it is not fixed and please include any additional information
that you think can be relevant (preferrably in the form of a self-contained example).
