The above webpage ( is not rendered
correctly. This may be due to bad HTML output from Excel but nevertheless: When
you reload the page the rendering changes. 

Things that change:
- The border of the table disappears
- Textblocks lay above each other, so that it is impossible to read the text

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Load the Page
2. Reload it
3. See the difference

Expected Results:  
The results of the rendering engine should be predictable... So, everytime I see
the page it should look the same way!

I got this message

###!!! ASSERTION: invalid BC damage area: 'PR_FALSE', file
../../../../src/layout/tables/nsTableFrame.cpp, line 4607

so I am quite prepared to believe that your page has tickled
a corner case in layout code, but it is not really my pigeon

See Bug 232345 "Column shifted on adding row to table"

I can confirm the bug it also strikes on:

scroll down to the programers, first time it loads the programers are all the
way on the right, after a reload they are properly centered. Yes the html in
there is messy and should be fixed, but rendering should still be predictable.
