Description

15 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030624
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030624

When http://www.inebriated.demon.nl/broken-float-printing.html is printed,
subsequent lines of the first paragraph are erroneously indented. The second
paragraph, although similar to the first one, does not show that problem.

Changing the order of the two paragraphs does not make both paragraphs print
correctly.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open page
2. Select File -> Print Preview
3. Notice bad results

Actual Results:  
Incorrect rendering.

Expected Results:  
Both paragraphs should be rendered identically in the print preview, as they are
in the normal browser window.

I think this might be related to font metrics problems. Notice that the T floats above the baseline in the screen rendering, but extends below the baseline of the first line in the printed output.
