From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:0.9.4) Gecko/20010913
BuildID:    2001091303

Two errors:
While using a very large font-size, trying to mark some of the
text in one of the tables creates does not mark the entire text.
For a screenshot see:
Also, at the end of the page, some of the words get caught up in eachother.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Load the page
2. Choose "text-size 200%" under "View->Text Size"
3. Scroll down to the two instances.

Expected Results:  The second text field should have had a line-break or
similar, right?

The text is using some CSS and HTML4.0, but I don't think it should
be too obscure for Mozilla.
I have noticed this bug on older releases as well.

I think the selection problem is a dup of bug 99937, and I cannot cause the
overlapping-text problem. 

It is one of those 'fix it and I will chop off your head, don't fix it and I
will chop off your head' bugs, I think.

Unable to reproduce the selection problem, but saw overlapping text consistently
at only one location in the page.  Creating screenshot attachment.

200 %.

I could recreate the overlapping text problem by visiting the page, but not with
the testcase.  I am working on a new testcase.

Simplified Testcase

The old testcase was not showing the bug as it was just a cut and paste of one
part of the page, so I have made this one which seems to show the bug properly.

The new testcase I just attatched seems to show the bug properly.
Just make sure you are in 100% view, open the testcase and change to 200% view.
If you are already in 200% view when you open the testcase or reload once you
are in 200% view the page displays as it should.

wfm 2002010303 win98 probably a dupe of bug 110243
The second testcase is still broken for me on a fresh Linux CVS build.
Keywords: testcase
OS: Windows 98 → All
Can reproduce bug with both testcases, but only when using a window width < 800px
or so, build 2002-03-22-03 on Windows NT.

Under Mozilla 0.9.7 and 0.9.8 I could produce the bug only with the second
testcase, and just by increasing the zoom.

Now (using Mozilla 0.9.9) the second testcase doesn't show the bug if I increase
the zoom unless I first turn the sidebar on or I reduce the width of the Mozilla

Also, the first testcase now shows the bug, but only if I first reduce the width
of the window, not if I turn the sidebar on.

Screenshot of "Simplfied Testcase"

Bug still occurs when zooming "Simplified Testcase" to 300%
2002-08-24-04 trunk Linux.
I cannot reproduce this on a current linux trunk build, at various window sizes
and zoom levels. Is this still a problem?
