Text with wider font in middle of text written with narrow font overwrites the
narrow font text right of it.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
Use the HTML-code in "Additional Information".

Following code (alone, or in proper html-file with headers) looks bad.
-- starts here --
[p align="justify"]Normal text[b]some bold(wide) text[/b]overwritten normal text
-- ends here --
I used [ and ] in this bugreport. Remember to change those.

My fonts are:
Sans: MS Sans
Sans Serif: MS Sans Serif
I can confirm this with build 2001021008. It depends on the fonts used for this
to show up, using Times new roman and Arial it works correctly. It might only
depend on the Sans font not the Sans serif but I'm not positive about that.

Not sure if this is related but there are many scenarios when hyperlinks are
overwritten by the text before and after them on my machine
(Linux mandrake8.0 i686) with builds for a long time till now (2001051921).
The text under the slashdot.org heading on this page is an example:
The links on this page exhibit it too:
(there is also the text flowing to the right of the end of the table seen on
this page)
Screenshots to follow.

The problem can still be reproduced on Win98 with a 2001-10-22-03 build using
the "MS Serif" or "MS Sans Serif" font at different sizes.

It looks like we don't measure the middle string with the bold attribute.

Note: the problem was reproduced with the attached testcase but not with the 2
URLs above.
Target Milestone: mozilla1.0 → mozilla1.2
WFM using the font settings described by Pierre, Win XP Build 2002071708, with
the testcase. Can someone else re-examine?
