examine this page with SM 1.1.17:
Now use: SM 2, FF3.0/3.5, Omniweb, Opera or iCab.
In all of those All-in-ones and Web Browsers The page for me views as
It display as intended SeaMonkey 1.1.*, IMO. There's a weird table
definition used to lay out the problem content:
<td style="WIDTH: 1%"/>
<td style="WIDTH: 10%">...</td>
<td style="WIDTH: 89%"/>
Note the abbreviated empty-element XML syntax used is not compatible
with the "text/html" type served, but what's really causing trouble is
the second <td style="WIDTH: 10%">...</td> element which holds the
main content. Why the author has chosen to specify 10% of the
available space for the main content and 89% for its right margin is
not clear to me. What we probably see with the more modern browsers
is effect of the newer _non-normative_ automatic table layout 
algorithm recommended just lately.
Yes. SM 1.1.16 honors the idiotic setting and hides most of the content,
as the author seems to intend.
