Actual Results: I had checked the source code of page and the element is a table after a span element. Expected Results: The text in the middle of the page must be in the end of the page.
Summary: The table elements. → Text overlaps other table elements
Created attachment 85999 [details] testcase the height of the div tag is specified and is much smaller than it needs to be to contain the table. I added a red border to the div. The out-of-place text follows the div rather than table. There doesn't seem to be anything particularly buggy about Mozilla's behavior... Evang?

I think this is evang -- the relevant part of the CSS specs is http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-CSS2/visufx.html#overflow-clipping (Notice the example -- a BLOCKQUOTE that's too big for its DIV.) The overflow property determines what happens when a box's content is bigger than the box. The initial value is "visible", which means the content renders outside of the box. In this bug's case, since the DIV is absolutely sized, the content shouldn't affect the DIV's size or the position of the next element after the DIV. Opera shows the same behavior as Mozilla. IE, on the other hand, expands the DIV to be large enough to completely contain its contents. I think the page is relying on IE's incorrect behavior...
