From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux 2.2.17 i686; en-US; m17) Gecko/20000822
BuildID:    2000091212

In the page at  the top of the page is displayed wrong.
Text elements get ontop of eachother and the menu that should be at the very top
of the page isn't displayed.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Point your browser to

Actual Results:  The page is displayed but almost unreadeable because of
diffrent text elements getting ontop of eachother.

Expected Results:  Displayed the page correct

I have confirmed this bug in every Mozilla build I have tried and today I
confirmed it in build 2000091212 both in Linux and in Windows. I have also
confirmed it in Netscapes prewiewrelease 2 in Windows.

I am still not sure if this is a bug in Mozilla or a bug on the page. it is
displayed correct in NS 4.75 and IE 5.0 but it might be built to accomondate for
bugs in those browsers.  I know to little about webpage building and Mozilla to
be able to trace it further.

I talked to Hixie about this and he said that the page contains invalid HTML and
CSS.  Sending to the Evangelism Component and adding evangwanted keyword.

The html is fairly ugly.
<table> without matched </table>
</nolayer> without corresponding <nolayer>

But I think the main problem here is the table defined by:
<TABLE border=0 cellpadding=0 cellspacing=0 Z-INDEX=1 ID="spalt1"
style="z-index:1;visibility:show;position:absolute;left:15;width:340">  There is
no value for top.
I think IE assigns the top attribute with the value of where the table would
have gone if the position hadn't been specfied.
In Mozilla top is assigned a value of 0.

Ok well the issue with things displaying on top of each other has gone away, the
only problem that still exists is with the menus at top not popping up.  That is
covered by bug 106423 so I am marking dupe to that one.
