We don't lay out the ESPN NFL web page correctly
I've always seen this problem with NS6, I've just been bad and have never logged a bug. When we go to render this page, we show some text like: "So and so stars at Training Camp" then there's a screen worth of white space before we actually start showing the images and text for the web page. I believe the problem is that they have a mini "sidebar" that runs down the left hand side of the screen. To the right of the sidebar we should show some images, text and links. However, we only show white space to the right of the sidebar. Once the sidebar ends, we then insert the images, text and links that should have been to the right of the sidebar. So the elements are almost stacked "vertically" on top of each other when they should have been placed horizontally.
duplicate of 52556?
I think this is fixed as of 8-22-2001, it now looks fine on 0.9.3.
yes this does appear to be fixed now with ESPN's new page layout for the NFL page. However, their new look now broke the major league baseball page in the same way the football page was broken before; http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/scoreboard note some text at the top of the page. Then a huge chunk of white space before you actually start seeing the real content. the table of contents table is messed up too.
Actually, I have 0.9.3 on w2k (I forget if this install has the service packs installed) and the MLB scoreboard renders just fine with no blank white space. I assume you're referring to the area that gives you options for changing the refresh rate on the scores? The only errors I've seen on ESPN.go.com in the last day are an occassional headline that is not in a font similar to other pages, but I haven't checked the html source to see if that was Mozilla's problem.
