I have seen the problem on several pages in the MS knowledge base. The symptom is lines of text overlapping and is present and reproducable on my machine in Mozilla 1.0 but not in IE 5.5. In this case the problem is visable in the top white section on the right hand side. On at least one page in the kb the offending text was in red rather than the black text IE displayed. I am no programmer but the relevant section of html is probably it the following. <div class="KBPUBV1" name="KBPUBV1"><!-- - - - - - - - - - - PAGE TEXT BEGINS BELOW HERE - - - - - - - - - - --><h1 class="title">BUG: MSCDEX May Not Detect Disk Change</h1><div class="preappliesto"></div><div class="appliesto">The information in this article applies to:<ul><li> Microsoft CD-ROM Extensions (MSCDEX) for MS-DOS 2.0, 2.1, 2.2, 2.21, 2.22, 2.23</li><li> Microsoft Windows Software Development Kit (SDK) 3.1</li></ul></div><div class="postappliesto"></div><div class="SYMPTOMS"><h2>Symptoms</h2> I am using in intel p3 platform with win2000 sp2 and hotfixes build is 5.00.2195. Mozilla build is 2002053012.
This is a duplicate. The "appliesto" class has several negative margin settings, so it is likely not a Mozilla bug at all but bad CSS on Microsoft's part. Whenever you have "margin-top: -1em" you can expect some overlapping. Note the empty <div class="preappliesto"></div>. I guess if it is inappropriate cheating with nbsp;, empty P:s and multiple BR:s, the new paradigm is to cheat with CSS classes in empty DIV:s. Code sucks, in other words.
