Certain sections in the page at,
are rendered incorrectly if scrolled up/down with the scrollbar. Looks like
there are some problems with the tables.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. goto
2. wait for the full loading
3. scroll the page up and down (or try to select the page text with the mouse)

Actual Results:  Garbage is displayed in the page. Not everywhere, but in
certain sections of the page. Search for "When Dynamic HTML finally started
taking shape
" in the page. Could be a table..

Expected Results:  Correct visualization of the page contents.
using moz 0.9.6 on win2k, wfm, page has some badly nested <p> inside lists 
and some wrong nested <a>s in the lower table. over the whole page more or less
severe mistakes.
I see this on current linux (2001-11-23-08).  There's a space that stays blank
unless you highlight it, then it gets some text....

Oh, to reproduce, search for that text then scroll down with down arrow.  You'll
see blank space.  Hitting pgup/pgdown will make the space paint correctly

Codeproject seems to have this an awful lot.
For example:
has garbage for almost half the page and corrupts a banner image as well.
