the content in the table is overflowing a bit to the right. I'm downgrading to
There are two other bugs filed on in addition to this one
-- bug #1239 (assigned: rickg) and bug #1431 (assigned: karnaze).

Bug #1431: the test case that buster filed there is cleared up, but I also
noticed the same 'overflow right table'. So #1431 is _now_ pretty much a dup
of this one.

Bug #1239: the font issue is still present in the boston_com.html test case

This page currently demonstrates traces of bug 991, bug 5797, bug 8489, and
the CSS2 empty-inline-should-not-be-ignored issue.

However, the form elements issue is now fixed, AFAICT. Marking WORKSFORME.

If the widget bug is still there (I could not see it), then please mark this
as a dup of bug 2486, which deals with inputs that are too wide.
Agreed. The form elements appear correct with the June 28th Build (1999062809)

I think this definitely depends on 8489, so I added it. The simplified testcase
can be found there. The case of the table overflow that occurs on this page is
(I think) unrelated to 8489.

No longer depends on: 8489
Resolution: --- → WORKSFORME
I thought I'd marked this WORKSFORME, but I seem to have made a mistake or
something, since the bug activity shows no status changes. I am now really
marking this WORKSFORME.

As I mentioned 1999-06-24, the other bugs on this page are duplicates of
bug 991, bug 5797, and bug 8489.

I am removing the dependency, since this is a dup of bug 8489, rather than a
bug dependent on bug 8489.

Sorry for all the confusion!
