I tried to long in with a wrong passphrase.
In the html code there was no font tag around the error message.

It would be nice to know where there can be errors to be able to test them.

Could test without issues:
account/14 -> ok
index/1 - multiple situations -> ok
index/6 - multiple situations -> ok
wot/5: Allgemeine Fehlerausgabe - multiple situations -> ok
www/wot: Allgemeine Warnungsausgabe -> ok [however the error as such is wrong]
gpg: GPG-Key-Fehler -> ok

not testable without access to testserver:
index/0: disabled functions ...

not testable at all, as it was removed:
(account/40: Mailinglist Note)
(index/11: Mailinglist Note)

account_stuff: Allgemeine Account-Fehler-Meldungen
- unsure what this should be, some account errors produced at index/1 -> ok?

general_stuff: Allgemeine Fehler-Meldungen
- unsure what this should be
file not founds -> ok

Could not produce the errors on the following pages - according to Felix they are deleted before they are shown
wot/8: Allgemeine Fehlerausgabe
wot/9: Allgemeine Fehlerausgabe

Even as there should be a situation where the following page displayed an "error" in the tables for user who have no CATs but 100 points, those users were just not shown, so could not test this error:
wot/1: CATS/Assurer
edit: could see this later -> ok

General note:
It would be good if errors were displayed always in the same manner.

=> those that I could produce were OK - could not do complete test

- includes/account.php is
account/14 -> is improved compared to last test
-> ok

- includes/keygen.php
-> needs IE without activeX - I do not have access to this browser at the moment, so no test from me for this
-> not tested

- pages/advertising/1.php is
advertising.php?id=1 - I do not see anything there
-> ok
(Hint: you need to have Add Admin rights = 1 - relog after you set this flag)

=> OK, as far as I could test it (did not retest other things)

As the bugtracker currently doesn't show the patches you can find them alternatively

I removed a trailing semicolon in one style attribute.
The specification at does not allow trailing semicolons in style attributes, though AFAIK it is tolerated by most browsers.

Since this is in fact a fallback to the previous version (and an extremly minor change) I don't think that this has to go through testing once more.

All other changes are acceptable. One might argue the class names, since "error_indicator" is used to indicate (IMHO) warnings in some places, but insisting on a change here would be nitpicking. I'll leave this to a followup bug report if someone also feels this way.

The review is PASSED.

Hmm, this issue has already been reviewed by BenBE in 2015, and AFAIK he was a Sofrware Assessor then. So this issue might be considered as reviewed by two SAs, but there have been code changes (beyond my little one) after BenBEs first review...

Dirk, can you just give a second review? It's a quite easy job, and could help to warm up for the other jobs to follow...
