Failure to load the side bar buttons in the side bar on the page cause the sidebar to be too wide pushing the document text into the table on the righthand side of the page. The problem seems to be that the sidebar buttons are there, but they don't get filled but the code that should fill them is displayed causing the table column to be too wide. The right something else seems to be up here as there is a long black column on the right hand side of the page that is not present on the page when I view it with netscape 4.61--this is probably just a black filled one-pixel wide cell that is getting stretched, however, I'm not sure about this because the vertical line as it does not seem to stretch all the way to the bottom of the page and doesn't seem to readily relate to anything on the correctly rendered page.

Reassigning to Sidebar folks.
ishaterin, are you still seeing this on a more current build?
Using the Nov 1 build I see that this has somewhat improved though it is not fixed. Basically the page renders now without the problems that it was having before however I should add that this is really on a similar page since the original page is no longer available. I used: http://cbs.marketwatch.com/news/current/cmb.htx?source=htx/http2_mw The side bar buttons still fail to display. The text that broke the original page no longer appears but dragging mouse down the side bar shows what the buttons should be (the boxes they load into are visible when the page loads) the mouse changes to the pointer finger and the button info displays in the status box at the bottom, but again they aren't there. So, better but not fixed
thanks for the update

I did not touch this to break it. I have a feeling it belongs to the widget or layout folks.

This does not happen on windows. Adding PP (i.e. platform parity) to the summary.
paulmac, how does thi look on Mac and Linux?
Jan, I think you're asking if this is dogfood - it is not and should be marked PDT-
