User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 Galeon/1.2.6 (X11; Linux i686; U;) Gecko/20020830 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 Galeon/1.2.6 (X11; Linux i686; U;) Gecko/20020830 In the (validating) page at http://mennonot2.goshen.edu/~carljm/float-bug.html The relatively-positioned div will invisibly "cover" the links in the floated span and render them unclickable (or portions of them depending on the sizes of the images involved). This happens regardless of whether the links are contained within a floated span or div, or whether the <a> tags themselves, or the <img> tags, are floated. This only seems to be a problem if the div is relatively positioned - if it is floated or positioned statically or absolutely the problem disappears. I would think that these floated links should remain clickable even in the presence of a relatively positioned div. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Visit the above page, or create any page with floated links next to a relatively positioned div containing an opposite-floated image. 2. Try to click on the floated links. Actual Results: The floated links are not clickable (or at least the portion of them "covered" by the relatively positioned div is not clickable). Expected Results: I believe those links should still be clickable, though I could be wrong.
I think it is dupe of bug 102695.
I concur. Sorry, didn't use the right search terms to find that one. I can see that the "proper behavior" on this one is a bit controversial, with good reason.
