Description

20 years ago
The site located at http://members.xoom.com/rootrider/index.html contains a
table with a single row and seven table cells. It is a navigation bar that is
common to this site.
In order to indicate which part of the site the user is on, I put <strong>
around the name of the page they are currently on (indicated in this navigation
bar/table). Along with the table not rendering correctly (bug #2817) the word
"Home" as seen on the referenced URL is not rendered "strongly". It shows as if
the text is "normal". As you can see the phrase, "Sites that I have on the
Internet:" is contained in <strong> and *is* rendered correctly. Therefore, I
am assuming that "Home" is not shown correctly because it is in a table.

Also, I'm viewing the site in the Developer Preview (Gecko) downloaded from
http://developer.netscape.com on 1/30/99.

This is not related to tables. The <strong> tag "works" for higher
values of 'font-size'.

The style for the "Home" in the table is {font-size: 70%; font-family:
Arial, Verdana, Sans-serif;}.

'Arial at 70%' (depending on platform and default settings) can be
down into the range of 'single-pixel', at which point 'bolding' is
irrelevant/impossible.

Perhaps a CSS/Font guru can confirm this.

Well, Navigator 4.05 & IE4 shows this particular example as "bolded" (except
that Navigator 4.05 seems to display <strong> the same way as Gecko when the
page is refreshed or revisited). It seems then, that the rendering engine
*should* show this text with a heavier weight.

Using 3/19 build on all platforms, 'home' renders 'strongly'. Verifying bug
WORKSFORME.
