- Open the main page of http://www.penguinista.org/ - Click on "Posted on ..." of a news - The page now is bigger than the browser window, with the text of the news on the right. Mozilla build: 2001091203, Windows NT This doesn't happen with IE5
"Posted on" is not a link. The date-links next to "Posted on" WFM on linux CVS.

Got priavte mail from reporter: it's indeed the date links he refers to. Layout component untill further - i think this is a dup..
confirmed win2000 build 2001091203 The page seems to create its content dynamically and, when the troublesome link is clicked, the page that is loaded contains some code where the other page contains content such as dates and stuff. Compare the source around the part that says "you will be assimilated". The code is mostly commented out, but it could be appearing instead of a closing </td> or </tr> or something, which might cause the observed behaviour. If it is a dup, I can't think what to search for.
Seeing this on Build 2001091203 Win98SE too. Broken URL: http://www.penguinista.org/cgi-bin/article?byDate=Thursday%20September%2013,%202001 I'll take a look at the HTML source and see if it's a problem there, otherwise I'll work on a testcase.
Strange. Take out the <!doctype html public "-//w3c//dtd html 4.0 transitional//en"> line from the HTML and everything works fine. Any ideas anyone?
Found the problem (I think). Towards the start of the HTML, there are a couple of comment tags that are never closed. Seems Moz and IE are deciding to close them at different places. Stripping all the comments from the file also makes it render fine. I'd stay this is a problem with the HTML code, not Moz. (Actually, it's most likely a problem with the server, because there were a lot of SSI-style commands in the HTML source. But it's the same result to us - Broken HTML)
I think this is a doctype parsing problem. Removing the doctype fixes it, but switching the layout mode in Viewer does not. CC'ind dbaron since I think he has been working on this problem...
