Zeldman's trademark 'Daily Report' composite navigation graphic is misspaced in
Mozilla 0.96, with orange strips below each of the individual graphics. Sections
of these strips highlight individually when the images are rolled over.

Zeldman comments that he's had a previous report from a Mac user that Mozilla
had this problem, hence my setting platforms to 'All'. Zeldman is running
200102150, which lacks the problem, suggesting that it's been introduced since then.

I did not see this layout problem prior to installing Mozilla 0.96. (The problem
is also visible with my newly-installed Galeon 1.0).

Evangelism.  The only change since 2001-02 is that doctype parsing got fixed so
that that page is now correctly rendered in standards mode.  See bug 22274 for a
discussion of why we render like this in standards mode and how the desired
rendering can be achieved in standards mode.

The simplest solution may be to just remove the DTD URI from the doctype, thus
triggering the backwards-compatible quirks mode.
