When I load http://www.wired.com/news/exec/0,1370,51624-2,00.html the image on the right clips the text. If I try to select text, I get selection-turds that are not erased properly. If I resize the window by a few pixels, it all displays properly: the text wraps before hitting the image. Mozilla 0.9.9.
Created attachment 78825 [details] partial screenshot Here's what it looks like before I have resized the window.
I see no turds, and the font is sans-serif too, linux current trunk cvs. This is propably bug 129350 (via bug 125056), fixed 2002-03-26. Can you try this in a recent nightly please?
This is because we incorrectly (due to incorrect parent pointers) changed the font the style data were pointing to, but didn't (since there shouldn't have been any change in the first place) cause a reflow, so we were displaying text using an incorrect font when the text was laid out using the correct font. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 125056 ***
