The four times I've visited this page, at least two of the lines of symbols
were overwritten: the line between "definite integral, from -1 to 1" and
"definite integral, from -2 to 2" evaluates a definite integral; the end
of this line is overwritten with the equation "g(1) = 0.881 . . .". The
line between "Derivative of hyperbolic cosine" and "Generic arc length
function" is overwritten with blue text in a sans-serif font: "equation of
semi-circle of radius R and derivative".

If I "restore" the browser (Netscape 4.76 under Win98SE) to occupy only
part of the screen, and then "maximize" to a full-screen display, the
overwriting text becomes the first two lines of the page. (The blue font
changes to Times New Roman.)

Has anyone else seen something similar visiting this page, or is it just me
(and my browser)?
