From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 Galeon/1.0.2 (X11; FreeBSD i386; U;) Gecko/0 BuildID: 20020102 If you go to http://www.seattletimes.com/, the main heading--the first article heading, that is--is always rendered in a tiny size. The face of the font is correct (the Seattle Times puts its headings in--you guessed it--Times Roman) but the size is way too small. Today it is supposed to be an 18 pt font. The difference between the main heading and all subsequent headings is that the main heading has its style adjusted using a DIV tag which contains a STYLE attribute. It seems this attribute is being ignored. Interestingly I tried swapping the DIV with a P, and the style attribute was still ignored. But if I removed the STYLE attribute from the DIV tag and added a SIZE attribute to the adjacent FONT tag, the main heading was rendered correctly. All other headings are styled with a FONT tag containing a SIZE attribute--not with a DIV tag w/ a STYLE attribute--and so these headings are correctly sized. I am using True Type fonts. This page is rendered "correctly" in M$ IE. The page doesn't look like very standard HTML, mind you. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Just go to the seattletimes.com page. Actual Results: Font looked tiny. Expected Results: Font should have been bigger--a full 18 points.
Seems quite normal to me on 2002010203, Win98. Is this a font problem in your machine ? There is a known bug about Arial fonts on Linux, see 0.9.7 release notes or bug 46415. It might be related.
I tried this on two different FreeBSD machines, and neither worked. It would be helpful to see if this works on Linux. I do think this is a problem with the FreeBSD implementation of Mozilla, however, since I can set the SIZE attribute of the FONT tag, and see the correctly-sized font in my browser.
