User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.5a) Gecko/20030718 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.5a) Gecko/20030718 The top of the page seems ok, but further down the page, large amounts of text overlap and make the page unreadable. I viewed the page with MSIE with no problems. Mozilla 1.4 has the problem, and the 20030718 1.5a version does also. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. enter http://www.nasulgc.org/ in the url box 2. observe the satisfactory rendering at the top of the page 3. scroll down and note the text overwriting text Actual Results: Text in lower part of page was rendered unreadably Expected Results: Text should have been rendered readably I have no idea if the webpage coding of http://www.nasulgc.org/ is standard or coded specifically for MSIE. This could be an evangelism issue. I also don't know if this problem occurred in earlier versions (1.3, 1.2 etc) or if it's a problem introduced in version 1.4.
There is CSS 'height' specified all over the place (in pixels) that makes the content overflow and overlap with following content. For example: <div class="latestnews" style="width: 229; height: 244"> IE treats 'height' as 'min-height' and that is a bug in IE. --> Tech Evangelism

Here's another problem webpage at MSNBC: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/4008194/ It appears normal in MSIE 5.5. Is MSNBC deliberately coding to exploit bugs in MSIE to prevent other browsers from viewing MSNBC pages ok? Or using transmitted browser info to select whether it displays ok or not? If there's something deliberate going on, Microsoft via its MSNBC entity may be violating something in its antitrust agreement of nearly 2 years ago. Can someone set up a browser to report that it's MSIE 5.5 for example, and see if that makes a difference in the appearance of the page?
Here's a page with an element out of place, the separator line between the list of columnists and the columns banner. I don't know if this is a bug or nonstandard html, but perhaps someone could look into it. http://www.nytimes.com/top/opinion/editorialsandoped/oped/columnists/
