Hi Alan,

That's a feature, not a bug :)

We want to make the point that when you stick to standards (especially accessibility in this case), your broaden compatibility. The opposite approach would be to develop for a specific browser which gets the result you are observing.

However, many people do get confused about this page and why the layout breaks. We tried several ways to highlight this feature in EOWG and the Task Force but they didn't work well. Do you have suggestions or ideas?

Thanks,
  Shadi
