Firefox has a bug that causes floats to overlap with other content in certain cases. This leads to an amusing rendering of part of the Wikipedia article about Web 2.0.

    Irony 2.0?

    Oh, the cleverness of me.

    I’ve noticed that bug on several occasions. Is there a ‘zilla bug for it?

    Sorry in advance if my question is inappropriate. What font are you using? My rendering of the Web 2.0 page is ugly compared to yours (even though I don’t see the frame that is being overlapped). I was happy with Bitstream Vera but your font seems both sharper AND more compact. Unless it’s your font-rendering engine which is better than Xft.

    It’s Helvetica on Mac. Wikipedia just tells browsers to use their default sans-serif font, and that’s Firefox’s default on Mac. (For the font size, it uses an interesting hack: it scales the text down using x-small and then scales it up using 127%.)
