When the user selects jump from the select box the table size seems to be calculated twice and the middle calculation is actually rendered visually. This results in the table changing size rapidly and annoyingly, ie the text jumps around. When the exact same page is reached through the link instead of onChange/Submit, it does not jump. My browser: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.0) Gecko/20020529
confirmed the same behavior with linux build 20020821, but I think there is another bug about form buttons doing weird things with layout. I can't find it now. :( The bug also occurs if you change the <select> to a <button> or a submit <input> and then just press the button (you don't have to actually submit the form, just press the button). Perhaps that will jog someone's memory. marking NEW for now ==> HTML Form Controls

Testcase gone. Could we get another, perchance?
