Description

Compare the format of bullets on this page in IE6 vs. Moz 0.9.9 (on Win XP Pro):

http://hometown.aol.com/flanker.adp?cid=10000&fType=best&l=english&sessionId=1019347090%2e107546

Look down at the middle of the page. The bullet is on one line, and the the text
for that bullet is on the next line. Over and over again.

Expect this is IE-specific HTML/CSS. Is there a "placement of
images with CSS" bug in IE that causes this problem? Note that this appears to
be the same problem as in bug 135265.

Page also looks fine in Nav4.79 on XP Pro. Can't believe that no one has filed a
bug on hometown.aol.com if this has been in here all along; any chance this is a
Gecko regression in 0.9.9?

ok. the relevant markup is:

<li><p><a href="...">foo</a>, bar<br>

multline blurb
<br>
<br>

and that the <li> occurs inside a cell but not inside a <ul>. This is such
horrible, generation 4, invalid markup crap, but it might be a candidate
compatibility fix in quirks mode.

testcase

Note if you enclosed this <li> in a <ul>, the bullet will be on the same line
as the initial text.
