Build: 2001082405 Platform: All Expected Results: No missing aligned images or gaps between images. What I got: Page is displayed with various gaps between images. Since the page uses the following doctyp, standard mode is used: <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd"> Steps to reproduce: 1) Go to any of these urls: http://itools.mac.com/1/iTour/index.html http://itools.mac.com/1/iTour/tour_email.html http://itools.mac.com/1/iTour/tour_homepage.html http://itools.mac.com/1/iTour/tour_idisk.html 2) Page is rendered with various gaps. 3) These pages rendered correctly when using either of the following DTD's : <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" > <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/loose.dtd">
Same problem with additional Apple pages: http://www.apple.com/earthlink/dsl/jump2.html http://www.apple.com/earthlink/dsl/more.html

This looks like an evangelism issue. bc?
petersen, can you develop a reduced test case?
Sure, I will take a look at reducing to a test case. I just which we could contact Apple to have them change the doctype to Transitional.
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd"> afaik the above dtd invokes standard mode layout. There has been much discussion over this issue and the current consensus it to use this DTD to allow authors to request standards mode layout with the transitional dtd. The other dtds referenced in this bug invoke quirks mode layout which is probably what Apple intends. The general opinion is that this is an evangelism issue.
Ok, then -->bclary

This looks fixed to me, but I'm not absolutly sure. Can someone confirm. They appear to have just removed their doctype declaration completly, which isn't exactly the proper fix, but it whole doctype issue is getting weird.
status -> invalid. Pages don't exist anymore with iTools being replaced by .Mac.
