        mathML page bug

I've noticed that the layout of this page is all messed up:
http://www.mozilla.org/projects/mathml/update.html

The images which should be on the right (at least they're that way in 4.6), end
up underneath the text. Is there a bug
on this, or should I file one?

Kipp, looks floater related

Doesn't this bug have to get fixed way before m17? This page is unreadable! I
think this must get done for beta.

I'm just being honest. I'm 100% on space, and nobody is backing me up, therefore
it won't get done until much later.

Perhaps Troy should reassign. It would seem to me that such a visible layout
flaw would be embarrassing for beta (although I don't know how prominent use of
this floater stuff is).
Whiteboard: (py8ieh:may investigate)

The page looks alright to me on Linux nightly build 19991006.
Could you supply a screenshot?

Things seem to have definitely improved since I first filed this bug. What I
was seeing before was all the images were left-justified, and the text was
layering on top of them. Now what I'm seeing is that some of the text doesn't
wrap in order to not end up on top of the image -- instead it just scrawls
right across it. This depends on the width of the window, so resize and check
for overlaps. For instance, the following line in the "Attributes" section
sometimes exhibits the problem:

"A few other tags have their own specific attributes as illustrated below: "

I don't have a utility (that I know of) to take a screenshot.

There are two bugs on this page:

(1) HR's that are too short

(2) Some text overlapping some of the floating elements.

The page itself is rather ugly and hard to read given the mixture of large
images that have text in them and other text floating nearby...

Updating to default Layout Assignee...kipp no longer with us :-(

Why are you re-reassing layout bugs? Do NOT touch layout bugs.

The bugs are assigned to Kipp so they can stay neatly organized until we have a
new owner for the block/inline code.

this is mostly fixed now (after my checkin for bug 29595, expected 3/22/00
afternoon.)  initial layout is good, and most resizing to reasonable widths
works.  resizing the window very narrow has some oddities, which may or may not
be bugs.  Will investigate further later.

This bug has been marked "future" because we have determined that it is not 
critical for netscape6.0. 
If you feel this is an error, or if it blocks your work in some way -- please 
attach your concern to the bug for reconsideration.

We probably need a testcase for this; I can't see any problems anymore.

QA, is this bug still a problem? Mozilla seems to be doing a very good job
at rendering this page now. Its rendering is much better than Nav 4.x and IE 5.5 
in my observations.
