The NIRA website, http://www.nira.com, is horribly broken. If you look at the source, the reason why is obvious. You see a lot of code that looks like this (pay attention to start and end tags): <layer> <nolayer> <div style="position:absolute"> </nolayer> <!-- ...content here... --> <nolayer> </div> </nolayer> </layer> The author probably intended for the content to fall between layer tags if we have layers, or between absolute-positioned div tags if not. But this document is obviously not well-formed. The kicker is, IE 5 renders this page just fine. So here's a bug for you. Happy birthday... :)

It's not a layers bug. We don't support layers, nor should we -- this has nothing to do with layers. This bug is assigned to *Parser* because IE seems to support some non-well-formed HTML which we don't, and I suspect the particular pattern: <foo> <nofoo> <something-else> </nofoo> <!-- ...content... --> <nofoo> </something-else> </nofoo> </foo> is a common mistake which we might (or might not) accomodate for. If you don't want to fix this, WONTFIX is fine. I just filed this bug to bring this to your attention.

If we decide to WONTFIX this for Parser, we still need to make this an Evangelism bug so they can contact the site, and other sites with the same problem.

ok..I took a shot :). Will see if this could be fixed.
