The line of links on the top of the page at does not
wrap around. This page has been verified HTML compliant. It does wrap around on IEX.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. just bring the page up
Those links specify nowrap.  The whitespace around the "|" is   which is
not supposed to wrap.  Therefore the browser has no location it is allowed to
wrap around, so IE is behaving incorrectly.
This only happens in quirks mode.  Changing the DTD to 4.0 Strict shows the
desired layout

Having submitted this bug, I'm no longer sure it is one after reading comments -
at least not in the way I originally thought. Perhaps more a case of
over-faithful  rendering. I have now changed the separator string between the
keywords in the header to "&nbsp | &nbsp" and now it wraps the line as intended.

The bug is actually slightly different to how originally described - having 
carried out the corrections suggested by comment #1, another problem has 
emerged: the line does wrap around, however it does so too 'late' so that the 
line overspills the right margin of its 'container'.

you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not
