Description

13 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; hu-HU; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041108 Firefox/1.0
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; hu-HU; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041108 Firefox/1.0

The page falls apart. IE displays something totally different - apparently the
intent of the creators. The problem is, the site is a (if not the) major weekly
in Hungary. 
According to the BBC country profile:
Heti Vilaggazdasag - influential political and business weekly
http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/country_profiles/1049641.stm

Even the openeing page is different - but it is somewhat more readable in Firefox.

I wrote to them about the issue, but they didn't do anything about it.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. visit URL
2. scroll down to see the actual content
3.

Actual Results:  
incorrect rendering

Expected Results:  
something more readable, like in MS Internet Explorer.

the main page, http://hvg.hu/ seems better.

Please look at the URL a second time: the attached screenshots demonstrate the
"problem". The site does not really pass a w3c validator...

...but the problem is, that this weekly is "The Economist" in Hungary, and it is
really hard to convince decision takers if they can't read this site correctly.

Same result in mozilla suite, moving to Browser.

Hmm. A quick perusal of the source of various pages on the site reveals rampant
VBScript, a <html xmlns:sc="sc"> tag (that one's new to me :D), and something in
there about MSXML.

In other words, very bad news. :(

The first step would be to remove all the "display:inline" on those DIVs.
IE wrongly accepts the CSS 'width' property for inline elements and this site
depends on that [IE] bug. There is no Mozilla error here as far as I can see.

INCOMPLETE due to lack of activity since the end of 2009.

If someone is willing to investigate the issues raised in this bug to determine whether they still exist, *and* work with the site in question to fix any existing issues, please feel free to re-open and assign to yourself.

Sorry for the bugspam; filter on "NO MORE PRE-2010 TE BUGS" to remove.
