Summary0000878: HTML output breaks when started inside a tag
DescriptionThe fancy HTML display (for var_dump, stack traces etc.) becomes unreadable when it is preceded by an unclosed tag.
Steps To ReproduceEnable pretty stack traces on fatal errors and run this:

<div class="<?php get_class() ?>">Foo</div>

This would create a non-existent method fatal error message with a stack trace table, but since the output starts within the attribute of a HTML tag, the <table> tag does not get interpreted by the browser, and the output becomes unreadable.

Debug output inside a comment or a script tag has similar results.
Additional InformationThis could be avoided by prefxining the debug output with code to close open tags, such as

<div style="display: none">--><script></script></div>

this is normally invisible, not wildly invalid HTML, and breaks out of the most frequent enclosing markup.
TagsNo tags attached.
Operating System
PHP Version5.3.9

I am not going to change this. If you want to prevent Xdebug stopping your layout from breaking, use the and
