User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.2.3) Gecko/20100401 Firefox/3.6.3 ( .NET CLR 3.5.30729)
Build Identifier: Firefox version 3.6.3

Web page did not show images correctly as placed on "colored background".  Used Coral IE Tab add-on to render website as IE.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Visited website from google search.   http://www.mercermuseum.org/
2. Repeated step 1.
3.



theme PitchDark 3.6.1
Windows XP Pro sp2
This is a bug in the site.  They have a <div id="header"> which has its height set to 131px.  It contains some things, including a <div id="navrow2"> at the very end which is floated left.  The 131px height is not tall enough for the kids of the header (at least given my fonts and font size; this could vary depending on the exact fonts used) and so the float spills out of its bottom.  The header is followed by an overflow:auto div with the content; this is made narrower to avoid the float and ends up as a 30px-wide strip on the right side of the window.

The fundamental bug here is setting that 131px fixed height; the site should be giving its header enough space for its contents instead.

I just tried filling out the contact form on that site, and it returns 404.  They clearly don't want to be contacted....

I didn't bother calling them, though I could if desired.

Boris: if you have some free time, that probably wouldn't hurt (and mention the broken contact page while you're at it). The staff list PDF on their site has e-mail addresses and phone numbers:

I'd suggest either their PR person or the executive VP for communication as a first contact.
