Will not load the side bar containing links to the Dell site. I asume this is
some sort of asp problem - gotta love M$.

URL works fine in Explorer 5.1

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to the URL

Rick, it's not clear what the problem is. That URL looks identical to me using
both FizzillaCFM/RC2 and MSIE 5.

Would you attach comparative screenshots?

Ah, I see. Rick, your steps to reproduce weren't complete. You forgot to mention
you have to log in to that site.

If you could, please attach the HTML of that page.

Note that this bug also occurs with Win2000 and WinXP. Site also functions

The attached HTML looks the same in Moz and IE, in that the "sidebar" is located
several screens below the other content vertically. Scroll to see it.

This isn't MS's fault, it's the fault of Dell's web developers, whose code
includes many easily correctible syntax errors, such as bad HTML comment tags,
XHTML-style " />" tag endings that are invalid in an HTML document, and an HTML
3.2 DTD they're nowhere near validating against. It has nothing to do with
"supporting Mozilla."

Dell seem to have fixed this page now.  It now works the same for me whether 
using IE or Mozilla.

I am the reporter for bug 173322 (marked a dupe of this one) and I am also
seeing that they appears to be working now. Both the premier support page and
the main premier page. Thank you Dell and evangelists.
