(I am using the 2001-11-06(03) Nightly build)

Novell recently updated their web-site so I don't know if this problem is due 
to that or to Mozilla.  If you go anywhere on their site, then do a search, the 
search result page is misformatted and almost unusable.

WFM on 2001101914 (~N6.2) / NT 5.1

Perhaps attach a screenshot of what you're seeing?
(Press ALT-PrintScreen on corrupted results page, paste into Paint)

Or a link to the search results page?

HTML code of "corrupt" search result (after)

Well, I've uploaded three attachments but they seem to have added to the 
mystery rather than answered it.

In particular, the HTML code I captured from the "corrupt" result window does 
not appear to be corrupt at all.  If I manually load it into Mozilla (or IE), 
it displays fine.  The only problem is when it is first displayed by Mozilla 
(as shown in the "after" screen-capture).

So, this seems to confirm that the problem is in Mozilla, rather than in 
Novell's HTML.

Confirming this bug on Win 98, build 2001112104. 

I had to go to the "knowledgebase text search" and then enter my search. The
results were the same as indicated in the screenshot. This looks like a Mozilla bug.
Ever confirmed: true

Same problem on developer.novell.com.
I think the real problem is with CSS not being included and the DIV boxex with
menus etc. are not positioned where they should be. CSS stylesheet
 on these pages is included from JavaScript
(http://www.novell.com/inc/hdr_script.js). I don't have enough JS
experience to tell why the stylesheet is not processed. I walidated the CSS on
www.w3.org and it looks good, so the problem is probably in JS.

I can't even get to the point where I can search the web site anymore. Do we
have to register now to search?

No, there's no need to login.

Go to the following URL,
At the far-right of the top-banner, you'll see the "Search->" link.

It works better now!  (I'm using 2002012903.)  A search for keyword "java" in 
Novell Support now returns a readable page of HTML.  It's still 'losing' the 
original fonts, though.  

I uploaded 2 screen captures: the "correct" search result (with unchanged 
fonts); the "improved" search result with this version of Mozilla.

Awesome. It must have been fixed by a patch. At this point, we could resolve the
bug worksforme. Alternatively, if you want to change the bug to focus on the
font issue, we can do that, too. There are some big font problems in Mozilla, as
you know.

I'd rather keep this bug open.  Either rename it (I don't know if I have
access-rights to do it), or mark it as blocked by one of the CSS/Font bugs.

Old Summary: novell.com - search results are corrupted

New Summary: novell.com - fonts aren't inherited

Changing component to DOM Style. Not sure this is the right component. Sorry if
it's wrong.

Does this, in the HTML code of the page, have anything to do with the problem?

<style TYPE="text/css">
.ffDate { color: #CC0000 }
.ffSize { color: #FF9933 }
.ffInput { font-size: 10px }

Component: Layout → DOM Style

Really changing summary.
Summary: novell.com - search results are corrupted → novell.com - fonts aren't inherited

Were you asking ME about the <STYLE> command?  I dunno!

P.S.  This is still an issue with Mozilla 0.9.9.

As on Mozilla 2002-03-19(03) on WinNT, this is working correctly.
