mangleme provides an automated broken HTML generator and browser tester.

mangleme is an automated broken HTML generator and browser tester, originally used to find dozens of security and reliability problems in all major Web browsers (Mozilla / Firefox / Netscape, Konqueror / Safari, MSIE, lynx, [e]links, w3m, elvis, etc), as reported on BUGTRAQ.

A trivial utility to automatically check for HTML parsing flaws. Generates
a basic set of badly mangled tags on request, with auto-refresh back to the
script, so that you can point a browser to it once, and let it run until
it crashes.

Put it in your cgi-bin directory or any other Apache folder with ExecCGI option enabled, then visit the URL http:////mangleme.cgi.

When the browser crashes, error-log should be examined for the last matching entry generated by mangle.cgi; extract the hexadecimal value, then invoke remangle.cgi?hex_value from the browser again. If it crashes, you've reproduced the problem, and can save the remangle.cgi page using wget or such.
