On some pages where a text link has been created like so <a
href="">Google</a> id the URL is longer than the width of
the page being displayed the linked text will begin a new line (with subsequent,
non-linked, text following it as normal). With some pages refreshing the page
repeatedly eventually makes the link render corectly in the text, with others
the link remains.

Please note: the page I am refering you to is frequently updated (and is of a
homosexual nature), thus the link may be missing though is present today (3rd
Feb 2005).

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to site
2. View link on new line
3. Compare output in Internet Explorer

Actual Results:  
The link apeared on a new line in Firefox

Expected Results:  
The link should be in the text (As in Internet Explorer).

The page is not entierly HTML compliant (does not pass the W3C test ~40 Errors).

could you provide a perma-link, or even better, attach a simplified testcase?

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
