Description

14 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8a) Gecko/20040420 Firefox/0.8
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8a) Gecko/20040420 Firefox/0.8

The page loads incorrectly, while other browsers render it fine.  I was not able
to determine which forum software the website was running, though.  It appears
to be a flaw in the stylesheets since the "borders" are all rendered at a finite
size, while the text is allows to overlap other borders, replies etc.  The link
provided in the URL is a good example of how poorly it is rendered. Here is the
link again:  http://forums.go.com/abc/thread?threadID=5148

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Load URL. Works everytime.
2.
3.

Actual Results:  
Page rendered improperly

Expected Results:  
Correctly justify the text to be aligned with the predefined borders.

The page relies on IE's totally buggy implementation of the "height" style
property.  Opera has copied this in quirks mode, which is why it may look ok
there...

In any case, given the CSS on that page our rendering is correct.
