This page crashes when minimized using Jan. 1 build of viewer.exe on win95. The first letter of some of the sentences are also separated from the rest of the sentence. Obtained from mozilla-layout newsgroup (posted 12/30/98). Apologies if this is assigned to the wrong person, Kipp, haven't learned who owns the different components. Please re-assign if you're the wrong person for this bug.
The layout mistakes on the page are the result of bad html being handled poorly by the parser. Here is a reduced test case that demonstrates the problem (note the missing </font> tag). <HTML> <HEAD><TITLE>The Nest's Main Page</TITLE> </HEAD> <BODY bgcolor=darkgrey><br> <center> <font color="blue"> Text </CENTER> <font color="red">more</font> <font color="green">text </font> </BODY> </HTML>
Ok -- the parser bug is fixed, but there's still something interesting going on. If you view this page in ie or nav, the background is a sickening reddish/purple color and not darkgrey as the body specifies. We show darkgrey, which is great, but since it's different I thought I'd pass it by you.
Cool. There were some problems in Nav's handling of named colors (most notably they were inconsistent in their use of grAy vs grEy). I fixed this a while back. If you change the color to "darkgray" it works in Nav too. We're right, they're wrong.
