table / text layout problems with certain page (IE vs Mozilla) let me give you a screen shot, and I'll attach the html in question.
I believe this is just differences in strategies in dealing with badly formed content, and there may not be much to bother doing here. The HTML in that page is like this: <BASEFONT size="2"> <FONT face="sans-serif"> <TABLE align="center" border width="50%"> <p>Fifty-year-old Alistair Beckham was... </TABLE> Note that there are no TR or TD in the table. IE seems to eject the content from the table and applys the BASEFONT and FONT the the inner content. Mozilla seems to eject the content from the table, and _not_ apply the BASEFONT/FONT. Tomayto-tomahto.

Chris: Why do you think this is a parser problem ( however, there is dataloss, missing P, that will get fixed with bug 138577 )? According to the content model BASEFONT should have applied. This is definitely a layout problem. --> Layout.

I don't think that Seth's initial report was about basefont.... that said, I'm not seeing the problem his screen shot shows on the HTML he attached. Basefont is covered by bug 3875. Marking worksforme, but please reopen if the problem is still reproducible (and if so, explain clearly what the problem is? ;) )
