Description

17 years ago
The NPR home page is looking really bad.  The background color should be white,
but it showing as a very dark grey in Mozilla.  The center column of the page
(that has "today's news" and "special features") is made up of a couple of
tables that all live within a <td> of a containing table.  This big <td> has a
class, "content", that specifies a background color of #FFFFFF.  Mozilla seems
to be ignoring this.  The page looks fine in NN4 and Opera.

Tested with Mozilla trunk build 2001100408 on Linux.
There's a missing end brace here:

SPAN.textsuper          {
                                        vertical-align:super;
                                        font-size:8px;
SPAN.titlesuper         {
                                        vertical-align:super;
                                        font-size:10px;
                                        }

that causes the rest of the stylesheet to be ignored, according to the parsing
rules in the CSS spec.

The webmaster email address was returned as undeliverable. I tried several
others, called and tried to contact them directly and have sent mail to their
postmaster. Not sure they really want feedback. ;-)

New problem, same site:
My default charset is UTF-8 with auto detection if possible, on the Text Only
version, some characters are incorrect such as in "Morning Edition".

The Page Info dialog shows the character set as ISO-8859-2.
