Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: firefox

There is a class of pages that has text next to images, and in which
firefox will run text right over an image and even into the next block
of text.  Here's an example:

go to 

click on "change colors" on the left
check "projection"
go to

There are numerous other examples on the web.

I've even seen this behavior on Windows Firefox. Probably it's some
common programmer error, but what's wanted is clear, and even IE does it
