This is kind of interesting. Does apt-get download and compile the source
for you? I have always used a binary from Perhaps something
compiled incorrectly? Have you visited other web sites using Mozilla, and
do they render correctly? Perhaps there is something in your code that is
not quite right. I tossed a page up on one of my servers that you can use
to verify if css rendering is working. I pulled up this page on my
workstation using Mozilla 1.1, Phoenix 0.2, Opera 6.x, and Konqueror, and
it looks fine. Follow this link, and let me know how it looks.
