Go to http://homepage.davesworld.net/~dennisb/ in Mozilla. The page uses a lot of CSS and obviously doesn't look right. Now go view it in IE. Much better huh? Looks like your CSS needs major improvement. The problem is the padding to the right is making the CSS too big I think.
The page cited is designed for a bug in IE/NN. The CSS 'width' property specifies content width, not border width.
Yup, just what David says. As far as the width of the absolutely positioned element goes, we're calculating it correctly I'm leaving this bug open because there are some issues about vertical spacing that I need to investigate
troy, could you add some detail about why this bug is still open and what you need to do to fix it? Thanks.
If you compare the way we render the page to how Nav renders the page you'll see for example that the "Hot Topics" section is rendered taller than it is in Nav. It think the problem is a compatibility problem with the block/inline code, because the content looks like this: <div id="sidebar"> <p><b>Hot Topics</b></p> </div> However, because the div is absolutely positioned I wanted to look at it first and better understand it before reassigning it to you

notes from Troy: <P> has a top margin in html.css. Kipp added this as a way to emulate Nav (and IE) behavior. But it's not the right solution. It should get surpressed for all margin roots. So rather than having this in html.css, we need code in block frame that special cases <P> (maybe only in quirks mode?) This special case should probably only effect elements where no top margin has been set.

Marking compat & nsbeta3. I think we'd better fix this for FCS b/c as the cited example demonstrates, sites are depending on this Nav4 behavior to format their pages & position navigational links and such.
Keywords: compat, nsbeta3
Sorry, forgot to mention: recc. nsbeta3+.
The vertical margin issue on this page is fixed, a dup of 35772. So I've removed the [P-Margin] marker. However, the page still does not lay out as in Nav4 (which is way wrong) or IE 5 (which is as the author intends, but as David and Troy point out, not properly to CSS spec.) I think this bug is invalid. eric, do you agree?
