Yes, I think it's a bug in Firefox, see
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=291126
Actually, this is part of the acid2 test, so fixing this bug in
Firefox would also improve the rendering of the acid2 test.

But only Opera and Konqueror display it that way, MSIE and Firefox stretch the positioned DIV to use all available width. Am I missing something, is this a bug in Firefox and MSIE or in Opera and Konqueror?
