Description

19 years ago
I've taken a huge chunk of the Beyond.com start page and placed it at
http://schist/beyond/beyond2.html. Here are the problems to watch out for:

1. Look at this part in the source HTML:

<font face=verdana,arial,helvetica,sans-serif size='+1'><font color=#cc0000>
Get 'em While They're Hot!<BR>
</font></font>

Save yourself from crowds and lines. Order the latest software from Beyond.com.
<P>

<A HREF="/PKIN997877/prod.htm">
<IMG SRC="acrobat_pic.gif" alt="Adobe Acrobat"
WIDTH=100 HEIGHT=88 hspace=7 vspace=0 BORDER=0 ALIGN=RIGHT></A>
<font color="#cc0000"><b>Hot Update</b></font><br>

Navigator 4.51 and IE 5 both render this so that the picture of the Acrobat box
is displayed immediately beneath the "Order the latest software from Beyond.com"
text. However, seamonkey is instead drawing this at the bottom of the page.

2. Note also that the text is drawn on top of the image of the Acrobat box! It's
also drawing on top of the marchmadness_pic.gif image as well.

Since the simple example doesn't have a table in it, I'm passing this off to
Kipp.

fwiw, I was not able to reduce this to a simple example.
http://schist/beyond/beyond2.html is the area of the page in which the problem
is seen - and it's got plenty of tables going on in there. The snippet given in
the comments below was given only to direct your attention to an area of the
source HTML, and is NOT meant as a simplified example.

I'm only looking at the specific problem described in 3/29 comments regarding
the following HTML:

<font face=verdana,arial,helvetica,sans-serif size='+1'><font color=#cc0000>
Get 'em While They're Hot!<BR>
</font></font>

Save yourself from crowds and lines. Order the latest software from Beyond.com.

<P>

<A HREF="/PKIN997877/prod.htm">
<IMG SRC="acrobat_pic.gif" alt="Adobe Acrobat"
WIDTH=100 HEIGHT=88 hspace=7 vspace=0 BORDER=0 ALIGN=RIGHT></A>
<font color="#cc0000"><b>Hot Update</b></font><br>

In the following test case, I eliminated the 'font face' tags and it displays
correctly (disregard broken images):

http://slip/projects/marvin/bugs/4374_rev.html

If this is the problem, there is another bug written up about FONT FACE - #4825.
This may be a duplicate.
Severity: critical → normal
Whiteboard: (py8ieh:will examine)
Target Milestone: M15
If it is a <font> issue, it will probably end up as a dup of bug 991.

cpratt: Could you attach the the test case on http://schist/ to this bug?
That way we could examine it from outside the Netscape intranet. Thanks.

[cpratt: thanks]

The Acrobat image now displays in the right place, and there is no longer any
overlap of text and images AFAICT. All other problems are manifestations of bug
991. I am marking the bug WORKSFORME, if there are any remaining layout issues
then please re-open the bug.
