Build ID: 2001-10-20-11-0.9.4 Reproducible: Always Steps: 1. Launch the browser 2. Enter the http://jazz/users/ptakhar/publish/clubnet/weekly/thisweek1.html Results: Most of the page is laid out and disaplys correctly, except for the 8th, or 2nd to the last cell.
This is happening on many internally produced pages ... here's another example. http://rocknroll/users/kimk/publish/15thedition3.htm I am having the people who created the pages send me the Fonts they used. btw - This displays properly in 4x
here be the fonts used on this page ... Header Font for edition and dates is Arial Narrow Title in header is MT Extra First Column Bookman Old Style for first article Tahoma for Services Second Column Garamond for first article Variable Width for 2nd article Third Column Arial Narrow for first article Marlett for events calendar.
When I've seen this on the Netscape internal pages, the font used is Marlett. font face="Marlett" is what shows up on Page Source. Perhaps I need to have that font installed?
Nominating for the next release nsbeta1. This also dogfood, since folks can't read messages from Les Concierges or ClubNet using Netscape 6. Should this be an evangelism issue?
Severity: normal → minor
Keywords: nsbeta1, nsdogfood
Using WINNT, IE 6.0 displays the page identically to Netscape 6. (Substituting a symbol font). I think you need to have the marlet font installed. 4.x must use a different algorithm for selecting a font when it doesn't exist on your system.

Perhaps these Netscape-internal bugs should have their own component?
I agree with Frankie. This bug should have been filed in Netscape-internal Bugzilla. I will upload a test case for Marlett font face. http://jazz/users/ptakhar/publish/clubnet/weekly/thisweek1.html This original site no longer shows the problem. The 2nd page cited is still problematical but it is an obsolete page. BTW, Marlett font is actually installed on Windows 9x onward in your system but the "invisible" flag is set so that you cannot see the font name in Explorer or Fonts Control Panel utility. So the original problem has to do with some Mozilla build honoring the font face attribute. Then we stopped honoring it for a while. Now the current trunk build supports font face -- so you will see the problem. See this page for Marlett font info: http://www.microsoft.com/typography/faq/faq1c.htm See the test case attached below.
Summary: Text Characters show up as glyphs → Marlett font face is used incorrectly
Created attachment 118745 [details] The prior test case had badly worded explanation. Replace it with this one.
Attachment #118743 - Attachment is obsolete: true
The old page is not worth fixing. Resolving it as Wontfix. May file a bug Netscape-internally.
