I was trying out the 1/6/99 snapshot of Mozilla for the Mac, and noticed a
problem when viewing a web page of mine (URL given above) with the apprunner
program.  This web page has several embedded quicktime movies using the <EMBED>
tag and the Apple quicktime plugin, which are rendered by Mozilla as grey boxes

none of the text that is supposed to follow the embedded elements shows up--the
page ends up with a bunch of grey boxes instead of grey boxes interspersed with

Absolutely and it seems even worse because the page ends at the first grey box.
Reassigned to <beard> and copied <amusil> (or was it the opposite?).

The problem here is that the referenced document doesn't contain </EMBED> tags
after the <EMBED> tags, so none of the content following the first <EMBED> is
seen. Under 4.5 the </EMBED> seems to be optional. So it's a parser bug. Thanks
to michaelp for helping me narrow this down.
