Hi Jan Roland!

Konqueror renders this code exactly like shown on your screenshots:
http://css.nu/illustrations/layer-ex3b.jpg
http://css.nu/illustrations/layer-ex3c.jpg
http://css.nu/illustrations/layer-ex3d.jpg

Major difference is that I have anti-aliased fonts, and sub-pixel rendering 
enabled, so everything is very smooth on my screen :-)
Pls let me know if you are interested to see/get Konquerro screenshots.

But MS should fix MS IE for Windows, as their handling for 'float' is broken.
(see another mail from me, posted day or two before; testcase is available 
upon request)
