tTe problem is intermittant, so if you don't see it right away try hitting
reload a few times.  eventually it happens.  Working on a reduced test case now.
The problem you'll see is the expanded charts section lays out really wrong,
sort of scrunched together.

minimized test case needed.  Sometimes you need to hit reload to get this to
happen.  Sometimes you need to load the url, go to another page, then click back.

P2 bugs -> future
ekrock, let's see if we can get someone to produce a minimized test case, so we 
can understand what's going on here and see if there's anything we can say to 
the folks who own these pages to make them look correct in NS6 100% of the time.
Target Milestone: --- → Future
Adding qawanted. Could someone please produce a simplified testcase?

The page looks 99% perfect now, the only exception being a line of text that
extends too far right in N6, but is split in 4.7. I'll attach a testcase shortly.

Here's the testcase (which took me 3 minutes to produce):

<TABLE BORDER=0 CELLSPACING=0 CELLPADDING=0 WIDTH=448>
  <TR>
    <TD COLSPAN=4 VALIGN=TOP>
      <IMG
SRC="http://chart.netscape.com/chart/Chart.tibco?sym=SFI&qsize=1&qunit=year&ts=3&ss=Small&name=IStar+Financial+Inc"
WIDTH="355" HEIGHT="130" BORDER=0 ALT="Chart">
    </TD>
    <TD ALIGN=LEFT VALIGN=CENTER><FONT FACE="sans-serif, Arial, Helvetica" SIZE=2>
      Expanded Charts
    </TD>
  </TR>
</TABLE>

I no longer see the original problem I reported here, no matter how many times I
reload the page.  Rick, what error do you see with the test case you added in
your previous comment?

The above url loads fine and the test case as provided by rick also loads fine.
