Description

17 years ago
This bug is being opened in correspondance to 
http://bugscape.mcom.com/show_bug.cgi?id=8678 . It is a wrmb/topembed bug.

Original Reportr comments from bugscape # 8678 :-
On the home page, there are some problems of layout :
- For instance, the line of the frame on the left is in dotted line (instead of
a line in IE).
- Images should be close to each other, here you can see space between them.
- The characters are not very nice, too big compared to IE.

still occurs in buildID:2001-09-11-05-0.9.4 -- win2k and linux 7.1

OK.  The site was designed by an idiot.  It assumes the font is a certain number
of pixels tall and only makes the blue graphics that tall.  Decreasing the font
size (prefs or ctrl-minus) makes the gaps disappear.  The problem is very
simple.  From the source of
http://www.otto.de/mall-cgi-bin/cfilter?pWkorbId=16368056218089725&pFile=/homepage/homepage_menue.html
(that's the frame on the left with the blue line):

if (document.layers || document.all)
{
  if (navigator.platform.indexOf('Mac') != -1) 
    document.write('<link rel="stylesheet" href="/homepage/macstyles.css">');
  else
    document.write('<link rel="stylesheet" href="/homepage/winstyles.css">');
}

So mozilla does not get the stylesheet with the tiny font that NS4 and IE get.

Over to evangelism.  Oh, the stylesheet uses pt sizes, not px sizes.  So on a
high-res display this site breaks anyway, even with their stylesheet and IE.

Well, the site now works, they support us. The url gets redirected to otto.de, a
new layout and all.

 However:

var mz = (!(document.layers) && !(document.all)) ? true : false; //Mozilla

That is ugly. Do we care about such ugliness? No, so marking fixed. However,
might want to email them to clean that at some point.
