From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; m18) Gecko/20010131 BuildID: 2001013104 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: http://linuxstart.com/news.html The links on this page exhibit it too: http://www.mandrakesoft.com/ (there is also the text flowing to the right of the end of the table seen on this page) Screenshots to follow.
Created attachment 35322 [details] Overwritten hypertext links and text outside table at mandrakesoft

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. Inline Layout problem -> attinasi

Note: the problem was reproduced with the attached testcase but not with the 2 URLs above.
WFM using the font settings described by Pierre, Win XP Build 2002071708, with the testcase. Can someone else re-examine?
wfm also, marking as such.
