The text on this page is not properly wrapped around other text or
images.  Internet explorer displays the page just fine.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Just go to the above URL.
The text seems to wrap and float fine for me on the 20020607o8 trunk build on
OSX. I do see a minor issue with the side blob "The aim of F# is to have a mixed
functional-  imperative language that works together seamlessly with C# and
other .NET languages." but this seems more like shoddy web dev/qa work
(difference in overflow settings between browsers) then anything else.

nmichael, could you attach a screen shot please?
Looking at the source for that page, the style lists "mso-" stuff, so I don't
think its standard CSS.
Look on the right hand side of this screen capture so see the overlapped text.
This in on winodws 2000, using Mozilla 1.0.

Let me know if you need anything else.
Yeah, thats what i was seeing, only on fewer of the floated boxes because my
font is set smaller. This is definely an issue with the browsers default
overflow and lack of QA on the page developers part. For instance, the following
code sets a 64 (64 what? miles? elephants?) high box, but the wrapped type is
clearly taller then that:

<div style="width: 170; height: 64; float: right; border-style: ridge">

<p style='margin-left:0in;mso-layout-grid-align:none;
text-autospace:none'><i><b><font size="2">The aim of F# is to have a mixed 
functional-&nbsp; imperative language that works together seamlessly with C# and 
other .NET languages.</font></b></i></p>

This is a dupe of bug 150571 (same url), but that bug is component Layout. ?

CNN hasn't been wrapping news text properly in Mozilla for about a month now.

[Current Mozilla build 2002091708 1.2a on Win95]
Try a newer build, i try the url at cnn and it wrapped it correctly.
Build 2002101617 (1.2 beta) resolves the problem for me.  Thanks, and sorry but
you're on your own again..!
