This is a badly coded HTML/CSS

<style> 
#canvas { font-family: 
          "times", "Times New Roman", "times-roman", "georgia", serif;
        }
.field_box { width: 120px }
</style>

<div id="canvas">
...
<div class="field_box">
<!-- WikiReader device -->
<input ... value="1">
<span>Quantity</span>
</div>
...
</div>

If non of these fonts are available on your system, the default "serif" font is used.
That is often "Dejavu Serif" on Linux. That font is wider than others, so text doesn't fit into a 120px wide div and the line breaks.

Please report this Issue to the page developer.
