From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows 98) BuildID: 2000082513 The way the Mozilla handles bold text that is underlined is wrong. Bold text that is underlined has a thicker underline, making many sites look really bad. Although this may not sound so bad at first, it's really worse you think. Lets say there is an underlined text string with only parts of it in bold. Only the parts that are in bold will have a thicker underline, the rest of the text will have a normal under. This is just plain weird to look at. It's seems to me the best solution is to make the underline for bold and normal text the same (meaning = not so freaking thick) PS I'm attaching a screenshot of the problem. I'm also attaching the relevant html code. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: Open the html file I'm attachine. Actual Results: Look at the screenshot Expected Results: The underline should be the same

This is definitely still happening with the testcase supplied here in BuildID 2003100904 yet the testcase for bug 1777 still works so this was incorrectly duped it seems -> Reopening

This was not just dup'ed falsely but it's a regression because I can hardly remember the time when it didn't work as expected, until (mid-?) october it started to regress again. Is this on anyone's radar?
This bug is quirks-only, of course. The problem is that in quirks sites expect the font size and color of the text to be used for the underline, so we just get the underline from the font. And the bold font has a bold underline...
Summary: Text that's bold and underlined is handled wrong → [quirks]Text that's bold and underlined is handled wrong

This appears to be fixed now, at least under Windows. Anybody still having a problem with the test case?
Worksforme too, but it likely depends on the exact font used....

This was fixed a few years ago by bug 403524, I believe.
