#16252: Pidgin can't handle XML namespaces in message history
 Reporter:  __kdex       |      Owner:  deryni
     Type:  defect       |     Status:  new
Milestone:               |  Component:  XMPP
  Version:  2.10.9       |   Keywords:  xmpp jabber history log xml html
                         |  xhtml-im xhtml message history handle namespace
                         |  namespaces
 In XMPP stanzas, Pidgin will (on receiving the message) '''display''' the
 following stanza as "Hi" in a chat window.

 <message type="chat" to="user2 at example.com" from="user1 at example.com"
       <html xmlns="http://jabber.org/protocol/xhtml-im">
            <body xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">

 When the user views the chat '''history''', however, the message goes down

 <html xmlns='http://jabber.org/protocol/xhtml-im'>Hi

 Note that for some obscure reason, the XML namespace from the HTML tag is
 included although it's not part of the message.

 This bug causes plugins such as "'''History'''" to misbehave when trying
 to view the log of a previous conversation by opening up a buddy's chat
