In this note we consider the Dirichlet energy integral in the variable exponent case under minimal assumptions on the exponent. First we show that the Dirichlet energy integral always has a minimizer if the boundary values are in $L^\infty$. Second, we give an example which shows that if the so-called "jump-condition", known to be sufficient, is violated, then a minimizer need not exist for unbounded boundary values.
