1 pixel high image appearing higher than 1 pixel

Win2K 2002-04-11-13-1.0.0 build

1.  Start the browser.
2.  Load:
http://home.netscape.com/computing/download/index.html?cp=hophb2
3.  Notice that there is a thick line below the "Other languages: Japanese |
German | French | Spanish | English UK | English Canadian" text.
4.  If you view this page in Communicator 4.7, the line is a regular 1 pixel line.

I tried to troubleshoot and did an "edit page" to look at the source.  It looks
like this line is an image which is 1 pixel high.
see bug 22274 for why strict mode renders like this (the page is in strict mode).

The rendering is correct; over to evangelism.  bug 22274 explains what steps
need to be taken.

We can contact Gregg Landskov of the Marketing team at Netscape.  He was the one
who brought this to my attention.  I'll cc: him here.

What needs to be done is change the html from

<img src="http://channel.netscape.com/global/art/ui/c.gif" width=600 height=1>

to

<img src="http://channel.netscape.com/global/art/ui/c.gif" width=600 height=1
style="display: block;">

The new version can be seen at

The ticket is in to fix the html for that image.  There is one other problem
that I notice on this page when viewing it using daily builds.

Look at the *Netscape Strong Encryption Eligibility disclaimer paragraph.  The
line spacing is way to big.  When looking at this page using 6.1 to 6.2.3, 4.x,
and IE, the line spacing is tight and there isn't wasted space.

It is only with Daily builds that I see this.  Anybody know how to fix this?

The fix was made on both the Download Jump and Download Thank You pages.  The
only other issue is the one described in Comment #5.  The line spacing is 2-3
times wider for the export legalese than any other client.

Any Ideas?

cc: emeyer for a css solution
The page's DOCTYPE triggers standards mode, but the CSS is being served up by
the server as "application/x-pointplus", so the CSS is being ignored.  The
server admins need to fix it so .css files are served as "text/css" before we
can do any useful diagnosis of the page's behavior, let alone suggest fixes (if
needed).  Who's responsible for doing that?

Eric - let me send this bug around to see if we can find a contact.
I pinged two members of web operations that I know, Mason Turner and Cameron
Thomas.  They used to be in Mt. View but now are in Dulles.  Not sure if they
are the right guys, but they should be able to point us in the right direction.

What specific URL comes back with the incorrect mime type? All the ones I've been trying 
seem to come back text/css
From Mason Turner in Web Operations:

---------------------------------------------------------------------
We have adjusted the mime.types files on the channel.netscape.com servers. I
have confirmed that the proper content type is returned:

# telnet channel.netscape.com 80
Trying 207.200.86.65...
Connected to channel.netscape.com.
Escape character is '^]'.
