When an image is left-aligned, and text wraps around it but does not extend to the bottom of the image, the containing box is drawn to end at the bottom of the text, not at the bottom of the image, even though the image is taller than the text. See URL for a clear demonstration of problem.
This is correct behaviour. 'align="left"' (a deprecated attribute) causes the image to float left (equivalent to 'style="float: left;"') and the image is therefore taken out of the normal flow, and the block box enclosing the image flows vertically as if the image doesn't exist.

Oh, and Mozilla's behaviour is consistent with that of other browsers (IE, Opera, etc...)
Should this be marked invalid then ?
-> invalid, since everyone seems to accept comment #1.
