Description Jamie Vicary 2007-09-20 22:32:31 UTC
In Firefox, on Windows XP, the beginning of
does not render properly; the text is partially obscured by the picture of the bus. Everything renders fine in IE.
Comment 1 John Mark Vandenberg 2009-01-28 11:38:22 UTC
It renders OK in Firefox 3.0.5.
Is this still a problem in Firefox  
Comment 2 Jamie Vicary 2009-01-28 11:49:05 UTC
Note that the latest revision of the page does render properly, you have to go to
to see the effect. My apologies for not originally linking to a static version of a page.

Using FF 3.0.5, I still see the text failing to wrap properly around the first picture (the green bus). As I resize the window, the text wrapping constantly changes to accommodate the new window size, and there is clearly a much bigger gap between the text and the bottom of the picture than between the text and the top of the picture.

In fact, at the top of the picture, the text overlaps partially with the thin grey line that frames the picture. The text is still readable, but this is obviously not ideal layout.

Comment 3 Siebrand Mazeland 2009-01-28 11:59:39 UTC
Closing as invalid. This is the HTML that is produced. Images and text are allowed to overlap. Often the template {{wrapper}} is used to format a page as desired. In this case, removing the {{see}} template at the top of the page, will make the page render without text/image overlap. Maybe the solution should be found there.
