Remember it's not Bert. It's the code that Bert tinkers with. I have 
much admiration for Bert.

Good to know where the styling is coming from, thank you David. It's 
Chris Pederick Web Developers Toolbar. Way to reproduce (always 
reproducible).

1. Open page [1] at any size (screenshot with full screen on 1920 x 1080 
res device) in Firefox (version 4 but has happened in version 3.6).

2. Open the edit CSS tool in the Web Developers Toolbar and then close 
it (this can also happen in another tab for a different page and closing 
the Web Developers Toolbar and returning to the home page).

The only way to get rid of it is to refresh or open the home page in a 
new tab. I have only seen this happen on two pages ever (both the home 
page of www-style).

I just wonder if multi-column is ready for the prime time since this is 
what seems to collapse to cause the overlap and dropping.

I could debug it. I'm good at that but my CSS using multicol is almost 
non existent. The layout can be done using a float layout.
