Description Peter Ford 2005-04-20 00:50:10 UTC
I went to this Wikipedia article (see URL) using the Mozilla browser, and the
first table wasn't rendered as a table.  I was seeing the markup for it in full.
 If you want to see my screenshot, let me know and I will attach it, otherwise
open the HTML file (discussed below).

When I looked at the source of the page (ctrl-u), the relevant portion is this:
 <!-- start content -->
	    <p>{| border=1 
... continuing to this:
 title="John Biggs">John Biggs</a> |}</p>

... which explains why the table was not displayed; the source HTML is wrong.  

So I opened the same page with Internet Explorer, and the whole article
displayed correctly.  I looked at the source HTML, and not surprisingly, it was

So I went back to Mozilla, tried refreshing the page, restarting Mozilla, etc,
but it still showed the article wrongly, as before.  I did ctrl-s to save the
page.  The resulting HTML file is wrong, like the source quoted above, and I
will attach it to this bug as City_of_London.htm.

I returned a day later, and it was still wrong.  But when I did ctrl-F5 (a
'strong' refresh), it became right.

I haven't seen this problem before.  I don't even know if it isn't a Mozilla not
a Wikipedia bug.

I am using Mozilla 1.7.5 on Windows 2000.

For convenience, etc., I'm attaching the web page as it should have been.  This
is the correct version of the page at the time of the error.

Well browsing the old revisions I can't find any problem.
