this page contains several tables that should be placed underneath each other
with some space between each.
Instead they are being drawn in such a way so that they overlap each other.
This is propably an error in the handling of the structure

DIV#Table3LYR { position:absolute;.....

I have included a .GIF file of the result and the HTML source code that
produces this error.
PS. somewhere on www.ultiboard.com i also found some text that was rendered on
top of a picture of a piece of "old paper" where the text appears to be drawn
too low in relation to the picture. Perhaps a result of the same bug.

Internet Explorer 4.0 and Netscape 4 rendered these pages correct.
Tested with seamonkey 1999111016
IMHO, this is just bad HTML. The first table is in a LAYER coded as:
<LAYER TOP=300 LEFT=107 WIDTH=496 HEIGHT=236 Z-INDEX=1>
and the second is in:
<LAYER TOP=566 LEFT=106 WIDTH=495 HEIGHT=236 Z-INDEX=2>

Clearly this will not work considering that font size varies.
Corrected the URL.
