The Jigsaw-logo image partially or fully obscures the first line of text (in H1
element) on all Jigsaw pages.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Go to or a page below it in the directory structure.

Actual Results:  
The Jigsaw-logo image partially or fully obscures the first line of text (i.e.:
the title) (in H1 element).

Expected Results:  
I think the author intended the text to be shifted down below the image.

The "bug" (of the text being obscured) occurs in all Gecko browsers, but does
not occur in any of the non-Gecko browsers that I tested it in (i.e.: Konqueror
3.1, Opera 7.0, MSIE 6.0, Amaya 7.1).

It appears to be caused by the absolute positioning of the logos in the CSS
<URI: > and Mozilla appears to be
handling the margin collapsing correctly.

This is a copy of the style sheet for the Jigsaw pages.  The styles for the
icons are in the DIV section in the middle.

Although the page is displayed using quirks mode due to the transitional DTD,
forcing the page to display in standards-compliance mode by changing the DTD to
the strict version does not change the display of the page.
please check if this problem still exists, because we want to get rid of
unconfirmed bugs.
Many bugs in here are strill unconfirmed, because eigher nobody sees the problem
or nobody is able to get to the page because of a required login.

(sorry for the spam)

Confirmed. Bug still exists.

This bug no longer occurs on the homepage at due to a
redesign, but still seems to appear on other pages.  Due to the apparent
browser-component-centereralised-mindedness of the powers that be at Mozilla, I
can not assign tech-evang bugs that I report to myself, but I will send a short
note to refering to this bug as this bug has been
around for a while.  (I was wondering if anyone could confirm that this is
defintely a tech-evang (and its not just me).)

Well, I just thought "hey, I'll just try assigning it to myself one more time"
when i posted the last comment and it worked.  Maybe they changed the assignment
rules for tech-evang bugs, or was I just dreaming?

Confirmed that the Jigsaw w3pages (e.g.: ) still look
broken in Gecko. Assigning to self.  Although, this is a minor bug, I think it
is important to ensure the W3C follow their own standards and not those of
Microsoft; I will email W3C again.
I don't think this is a Tech Evangelism bug. See the testcase of bug 274387.
That makes it clearly a bug in Mozilla (see also what Opera7.5 is doing, which
is correct).
