Webmonkey helpfully files a bug report in the form of a press story. See http://www.hotwired.com/webmonkey/99/16/index1a_page3.html?tw=browsers for screen shot. I checked; http://beta.hotbot.com/ looks great in Nav4 but messy in 4/7 AppRunner on NT4.
The problems I see are the following: .redBox1 - the stylesheet assigns a margin to an inline-level element. This is hotbot's mistake. NGLayout is correct not to show a space above "Search the Web" .redbox2 - SEARCH button - This is an error on *both* sides. The 10px width on .redBox2 is way too small, but NGLayout is making it way too big, thus spreading the red way out. NGLayout is correctly rendering no space between "MORE SEARCH OPTIONS" and "Also Search" because, per HTML40, it is treating empty P elements as if they do not exist. (While I don't love this behavior, it's in the spec.) In general, this page is quite badly written (try running it through an HTML validator; try changing the font size if you have bad vision). Unfortunately, that is the state of the web.
Actually, my redbox2 comment was wrong. Hotbot is browser-sniffing the CSS, and it only gives the "width: 10px" to MSIE. Therefore NGLayout is correct on the .redBox2 as well. Unless you see any other problems, this bug should be marked RESOLVED-INVALID.
